NFL Notes: Tony Romo, 49ers, Bears & Colts

Tony Romo

  • Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday that they just aren’t sure about Tony Romo‘s timetable to return: “I just don’t know.” (Jon Machota)
  • Jones mentions that it could be 4-6, 6-8 or 8-10. No one is really sure about the time he’ll need to get healthy right now.
  • Jones added that he doesn’t think this injury will force Romo into retirement. (Jon Machota)
  • Whether or not they’ll place Romo on injured reserve to open the season is still being discussed, according to Jones. (Jon Machota)


  • Mike Garafolo added that the 49ers view Colin Kaepernick as their second best quarterback and that either Christian Ponder or Jeff Driskel is going to have to beat him out for that spot.
  • Garafolo also noted that their wouldn’t be any cap or money savings should the team decide to release him
  • Garafolo added that due to the injury guarantees, the team could take a similar approach that the Redskins took with Robert Griffin III and “wrap him in bubble wrap” by making sure he doesn’t get injured.


  • Brad Biggs mentions that the Bears are likely in the market for cornerback help right now. However, Biggs can’t see Bears GM Ryan Pace parting with draft picks for a cornerback.


Mike Wells writes that even though the Colts quickly signed veteran RB Stevan Ridley to a contract on Monday, there’s no guarantee he’ll be on their roster to open the year.

Ridley admitted that there’s a steep learning curve to pick up a team’s offense in so little time.

Not only getting in the playbook, knowing your assignment is one thing, but then you have to become the player that you are once you do know that assignment,” Ridley said. “You have to get comfortable. You have to gain you teammates’ trust. You have to go out there and try to make the most of each rep that you can. But it is a task. It’s a job in front of me.
