According to a press release, the Cowboys’ organization will begin the search for veteran quarterbacks to add to the roster. The four names under consideration are Christian Ponder, Matt Flynn, Josh Johnson and McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

SMU senior Brad Dillenback says he’s hopeful Romo will return sooner than expected.

“Romo’s injury is a devastating blow to the Cowboys’ offense,” Dillenback said.

While Romo is expected to miss eight weeks, Weeden will be the starting quarterback while the Cowboys’ organization works out their next move.
