Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones refused to legitimize the manufactured controversy regarding Dez Bryant’s diminished production with rookie quarterback Dak Prescott on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan Friday morning.
Jones said he has no concerns about Bryant’s numbers because Prescott is playing like a dream, taking the ball where it should go.
“The key thing is Dak is taking it where it should go,” Jones said. “If (the defense) has compromised Dez a little bit, Dak gets it to somebody else. That’s what you dream about. A quarterback that can not only look them off, but read where his best throw is.”
Jones refused to co-sign the notion that Bryant would be better off with Tony Romo at quarterback.

“I won’t say that,” Jones said. “I don’t want to say anything like that. The defense dictates that a lot. I can’t say enough how Dak’s playing.”
Regarding Romo’s health and availability for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jones said a lot will be determined on how he handles today’s practice.
Before this week, Romo hasn’t had back-to-back practices on a Wednesday and Thursday during a season in two years
If Romo is active for the first time since suffering a fractured bone in his back and missing the first eight games of the seasons, he will serve as the backup to Prescott.
“I’m anxious to see how he does,” Jones said. “It’s how you come back after you had two days of practices. I anticipate him doing well. That is the real good thing. We will take it from there. It’s real exciting when you see the play we are getting from Dak and Tony coming out here and getting in the swing of things.
