NFL Notes: Tony Romo, Browns, Dolphins, & Texans

Tony Romo

  • Rand Getlin reports that Cowboys QB Tony Romo (broken collarbon) won’t practice this week, and will likely require “the full eight weeks” before he returns.
  •  According to Getlin, Romo is feeling good and is excited about coming back.
  • The first game Romo is eligible to return for is their Week 11 match up against the Dolphins.
  • Ian Rapoport reports that although Romo is not practicing, he’s still “on target” to return when eligible.

Browns

Browns OLB Paul Kruger admitted that he’s not all that surprised to hear his name being mentioned as a potential trade candidate.

“Not necessarily based on the way things have been playing out a little bit, but at the same time, we’re focused on winning games,” said Kruger, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “That hasn’t really been something that has been discussed with me, so I’m just here to play and do my part so it’s hard to put too much thought into those rumors.

Dolphins

Dolphins HC Dan Campbell mentioned that they’re considering surgery for RT Ja’Wuan James, who suffered a toe injury during last week’s game.

We’re kind of looking at all of the options and all the scenarios,” Campbell said, via ESPN.com. “We know it’s not good, but we don’t know quite how bad it is yet.”

With James out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, the Dolphins are likely to rely on Jason Fox at right tackle.

Texans

  • Rand Getlin reports that the back injury Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney suffered during Sunday’s game isn’t believed to be serious.
  • Getlin’s source added: “Right now he’s just sore.”
  • According to Getlin, there should be clarity on the nature and extent of Clowney’s injury tomorrow after more evaluation.
