Despite stating that the Cowboys' quarterback situation may never be totally resolved, the team seems to have made a decision for the moment.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo apparently has no issues assuming second-team duties behind rookie Dak Prescott when he returns from injury next week.
The decision is only in place as long as Prescott continues to play at this high level.
Romo suffered a fractured vertebra in his back during the preseason, leaving rookie Prescott as the team's starting quarterback. Prescott has since led the team to an NFC-best 7-1 record while playing at a Pro Bowl level.
The 36-year old Romo is currently healthy, but will likely be on the sidelines with a clipboard for the foreseeable future. Rapoport also states that the transition has been difficult for the 13-year veteran, but he will continue to be a team player.
Prescott has thrown for 2,020 yards this season with 12 touchdown passes and two interceptions. He's also managed 125 yards on the ground and four scores.
