DALLAS – Dak Prescott will keep his starting spot with the Cowboys, at least for the near future.

Team owner Jerry Jones confirmed the news at a Monday morning press conference.

Jones said the Cowboys will not rush Tony Romo back into action, especially with the success Prescott has had in leading the team to a 6-1 start.

Romo’s injury has given the Cowboys the opportunity to delay their decision on naming a starting quarterback when both players are healthy. 

Romo has not been cleared for practice, but is throwing more and conducting light workouts.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was emphatic early in the season, saying Tony Romo would be the starter when he got healthy. 

Jones’ mindset seems to have changed after Prescott’s impressive start in his rookie season.  

That situation could come to a head in the future, but for now the Cowboys have made it clear that they are comfortable with Prescott under center and would prefer not to make a decision any time soon.
