    But tight end Jason Witten and running backs DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are also expected to sit out the game, according to a source.

    This isn’t a surprise. Last season, Romo, Murray and Witten were held out of the team’s first exhibition game against Miami in Canton, Ohio.

    Meanwhile, the Cowboys appear to be taking precautions with Dunbar, who has participated in all training camp practices but is only eight months removed from surgery to repair damage in the posterolateral corner of his left knee.

    Second and Third preseason games are the time to let the 1st team O and D shine. Until then, its an opportunity to look at depth. We already have enough people hurt that we were counting on to contribute.

    Absolutely! Dez will want to play, but he has had back issues. Do you want to expose him to more hits on that back?

    We all know what these vets are capable of. No need to put them out there when the coaches need to see the kind of depth they have.

    Dez is the one who actually has a bad back. The rest are fakers.
