Dez Bryant's fantasy value takes hit with Romo injury (1:37)

The Cowboys have placed rookie linebacker Jaylon Smith on the reserve/non-football list, which officially knocks him out for the first six weeks of the regular season. The chances of Smith playing at all in 2016 remain slim because of two torn ligaments and nerve damage in his left knee suffered in Notre Dame's bowl game last January.

Jason Garrett said Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee is dealing with a knee injury but the team doesn't believe it is something that will keep him out of the season opener. Lee had an MRI on Monday and has not practiced since playing vs. Seattle.

How much time will Tony Romo miss with a compression fracture in his back? Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas: "I don't know and don't know that anybody does," Jones said. "But it's quite a range there, four to six, six to eight, eight to (10)." Yet coach Jason Garrett has yet to even rule Romo out of the season opener against the New York Giants.

The Cowboys hope they need a veteran backup quarterback for 6-8 games before Tony Romo returns. Why would they give up a draft pick of any kind and the possible four-year value it could bring? The bet is they add a veteran as a free agent or make conditions of trade compensation hard to meet.

The silver lining for the Cowboys

Yes, Tony Romo is hurt once again, but it could be worse. Fourth-round rookie Dak Prescott has dazzled in the preseason, accounting for seven of the team's nine touchdowns.
