Tony Romo targets Friday for debut

CANTON, Ohio -- Tony Romo didn't play against the Miami Dolphins Sunday night in the Hall of Fame game.

He expects to make his preseason debut Friday against Oakland.

"Heck yeah," said Romo, when asked if he's playing in the next game. "Unless something weird happens and we sit everybody again."

Romo participated in pre-game warmups and spent the game on the sideline in uniform, but didn't play because coach Jason Garrett treated this game as a showcase for his younger players.

Garrett viewed it as a bonus game since the Cowboys will play five preseason games.

The Cowboys used only four starters -- offensive linemen Tyron Smith, Doug Free and Travis Frederick and linebacker Justin Durant.

Smith and Free played just the first series.
