FRISCO, Texas -- Dez Bryant should be ready to return from a knee injury when Dallas comes back from the bye for a key game against Philadelphia in the suddenly difficult NFC East.When the Eagles visit on Oct. 30, the Cowboys will be that much closer to having to decide whether Tony Romo gets his job back from Dak Prescott, the rookie quarterback with a five-game winning streak.Of course, Dallas has this touchy subject because of a surge to the second-best record in the NFC entirely without Romo, sidelined by a preseason back injury, and minus 2014 All-Pro receiver Bryant for three games.And, yes, coach Jason Garrett considers it a touchy subject.Does this microphone work? a somewhat exasperated Garrett asked Monday when hed had enough of the questions about Romo, prompting laughter as reporters got the hint.The Cowboys (5-1) are winning the same way they did in 2014, when they also dropped the season opener at home and won the next six on the way to the NFC East title at 12-4. Dallas is getting efficient play at quarterback and dominating the running game, which is helping an opportunistic defense.But instead of Romo and 2014 NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murray, its a pair of rookies in Prescott and league rushing leader Ezekiel Elliott. And a team with plenty of other young players has back-to-back wins over perennial playoff teams in Cincinnati and Green Bay.Im surprised that were playing as well as weve played, owner Jerry Jones said after a 30-16 win over the Packers , just the second ever for Dallas in Green Bay. We just want to keep this thing going forward, knowing in the NFL that the wheels could come off at any minute.If the wheels dont come off, Garrett will eventually have to answer questions about Romo vs. Prescott.Garrett said he didnt anticipate the 36-year-old Romo for the only practice this week on Wednesday, which means the earliest Dallas 10-year starter could practice would be four days before the Philadelphia game. In that case, the Nov. 6 visit to Cleveland is a more likely potential return date.If the Cowboys beat the Eagles and another standout rookie quarterback, Carson Wentz, the pro-Prescott chorus will grow.Since Friday, that chorus has grown to include four prominent names in Cowboys lore: Hall of Fame quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman, all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smith and two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Jimmy Johnson.The reasoning is mostly the same from each: In the NFL, you dont mess with momentum.Id hate to end up here with two winning quarterbacks and a tough decision as to who is going to win the game, Jones said with a wink. I think what we do is enjoy how were seeing Dak progress. I have comfort in the fact that every time Romo throws a football its got more velocity on it. Thats a good spot to be in.Bryant returned to practice last week and wanted to play against the Packers, but doctors ruled otherwise.Assuming he returns against the Eagles, it will be five weeks since he sustained a hairline fracture in a bone in his right knee against Chicago. Bryant returned to the game after getting hurt and had his only touchdown of the season.Garrett happily addressed questions about Bryant. Romo, not so much.We dont deal a whole lot in hypotheticals, Garrett said. What we try to do is we try to focus on whats in front of us right now and do the best job we can as players and coaches. Tony has done a really good job with his rehab, and hes getting better and better every day.The question wont be hypothetical much longer.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Gregor Blanco Jersey .

LOUIS -- St. PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Reserved and unaccustomed to the spotlight, Kathryn Smith still has difficulty putting into perspective what its like to be the NFLs first full-time female assistant coach.Its crazy, Smith says when reminded of the nationwide attention shes drawn -- including a retweet by Chelsea Clinton -- in the eight months since Rex Ryan promoted her to be Buffalo Bills special teams quality control coach.Though it was Smiths intention to pursue a career in athletics when choosing to major in sports management at St. Johns in 2003, she never knew where that path might eventually lead. Football was an option. So was basketball.And the 31-year-old three-sport high school athlete from suburban Syracuse, New York, never anticipated she would one day be recognized for breaking the gender barrier of North Americas most popular sport.If that makes Smith somewhat of a reluctant trail blazer, then so be it.Thats not been my focus, Smith says of generating headlines. But, at the same time, if that shows somebody if you work hard that you can do whatever you set your mind to, and if thats the message thats getting across to girls, boys, whoever it is, then I think thats a good thing.What would be even better is if Smith gained some female company on NFL sidelines.I dont think its as far down the road as maybe other people do, she says. I might be the first. But I dont think Ill be the only one for very long.Women have gradually made inroads in professional football, first at the executive and ownership levels, and now on the field.The first real glimpses began last summer when Jen Welter served a six-week training camp internship coaching Arizona Cardinals inside linebackers. And then theres Sarah Thomas, who last year became the NFLs first full-time female on-field official.Tony Dungy believes the trend will grow.The future is unlimited, the former coach said last week before his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We will see female coaches because they can coach the game. We see females officiating in the NBA and the NFL. Its just a matter of time that well see more.The key, Dungy says, is for head coaches to begin thinking outside the box, as Ryan and Arizonas Bruce Arians have done.For so long, we had a characterization of what we thought coaches were, and now a number of coaches are going against the grain, he said. Coaches should not be fit in boxes.Its not as if women dont follow football. The NFL says 52.6 million female viewers watched this years Super Bowl, the second most behind last years game.Smiths ascension into coaching is owed in laarge part to Ryan.dddddddddddd Upon taking over as New York Jets coach in 2009, Ryan first noticed Smiths potential when she worked as the teams player personnel assistant. Ryan took Smith under his wing by promoting her to be his administrative assistant. Ryan then brought her to Buffalo when he was hired by the Bills in January 2015. He elevated her to the position of administrative assistant to his assistant coaches, with a particular emphasis on special teams.Aside from working with coordinator Danny Crossman, Smith also gained an opportunity to interact with players. She did such a good job that Crossman wasnt surprised in January when Ryan informed him of his plan to promote Smith.Coaching is teaching, and teaching is communicating, Crossman says. So a hard worker whos a good communicator and works hard, yeah, why not?Now, its on Smith to find her voice and niche, Crossman said.I think shes still finding it, he says, noting Smiths true development will start once the Bills begin playing games.That comes Saturday, when Smith will be on the sideline for Buffalos preseason opener against Indianapolis.Anna Isaacson, the NFLs senior vice president of social responsibility, says Smiths presence on the field is an invaluable example to women. She recalled what former tennis star Billie Jean King said during a womens summit the NFL held during this years Super Bowl festivities.She said, `If you see it, you can be it, Isaacson says. If youre a little girl, and you see someone in a position that looks like you, then you believe you can be that person. And that oftentimes is a huge motivator.Bills fan Julie Schmidt says Smiths promotion can inspire her 12-year-old daughter Aubrey, who sat beside her in the stands during a recent training camp practice.I think its fantastic that the Bills have shown they can think beyond the box that theyre living in, Schmidt says. I think it shows our youth that the possibilities are endless.Kathryn Smith is in no position to look too far ahead. Like any coach, her job security is measured by what happens on game day.Im the QC, so Im at the bottom of the totem pole, and Im just trying to get my work done, and do it as best as I possibly can, Smith says. My focus right now is this year, this season, Indy on Saturday, Week 1. I cant really look too far beyond that right now.---AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Black Jerseys ' ' '
