IRVING, Texas — Brandon Weeden is the starter for Dallas with Tony Romo sidelined by a broken collarbone, and coach Jason Garrett made sure to remind the fourth-year player of that after the Cowboys traded for Matt Cassel.
“Every player on this team is competing each and every day for their spot on the team, for their role on the team. That’s starters, that’s backup guys, that’s everybody. He knows that,” Garrett said. “Everybody knows that. Having said that, 100 percent support behind Brandon as our starting quarterback.”
Former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore was signed off the practice squad and likely will be Weeden’s backup Sunday against Atlanta.
“If I’m wearing pads and a helmet on game day, then I’ll be ready to go if needed,” Moore said. “Obviously, during the week I’ll maybe get a few more reps on (the) scout team, but other than that, we’re going to prepare the same way.”
