Draft Scout Brandon Weeden News
10/29/14 - QB Brandon Weeden is preparing to start against the Cardinals if Tony Romo can't go. Weeden was 4-of-6 passing for 69 yards and a touchdown in two series of work against the Redskins. It was his first regular-season action since Week 12 last season with Cleveland.
Weeden worked with the first team in practice Wednesday, which has been common practice since the third week of the season when Romo began taking a day off to rehab his back. He said he is ready for whatever happens.
"I think it's still a day to day type thing," Weeden said. "I think I'm going to take the reps. I took the reps today obviously. If he's out there practicing, great. If not, then I'll step in there and take each rep, which has been good. For the last seven or eight weeks, I've been able to take those reps on Wednesday which has been good for me. I'm going to treat it no different. If he's able to go, that's the best thing. We'll see how everything plays out."
Third-string quarterback Dustin Vaughn said the Cowboys were preparing as if Romo wasn't going to play.
"You have to," Vaughn said. "Hopefully Brandon goes through and has a great game."
10/02/14 - QB Brandon Weeden is the biggest beneficiary to the Cowboys decision to keep Tony Romo out of practice every Wednesday. It allows the backup quarterback to get reps he ordinarily wouldn't get. That is huge for Weeden, who is in his first year in Dallas after two disappointing years with the Cleveland Browns.
08/29/14 - QB Brandon Weeden will be the backup quarterback to Tony Romo in 2014. The Cowboys say they are comfortable with him starting if Romo goes down with an injury. But they also realize Weeden still needs a lot of work after an uninspiring preseason.
Weeden finished the preseason completing 34 of 57 passes for 388 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions and a 77. 2 passer rating.
08/24/14 - QB Brandon Weeden had another solid outing to cement his spot as the primary backup. Weeden completed five of nine passes for 77 yards and a touchdown pass of 27 yards to LaRon Byrd.
08/10/14 - QB Brandon Weeden was very impressive in his first official outing as Cowboys quarterback.
Weeden completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards with one touchdown in the first half.
He showed lively arm. But also showed touch and resolve.
His opening drive -- the only one with the first team offensive line -- was stalled by an illegal hands to the face penalty against guard Mackenzy Bernadeau.
An undeterred Weeden brought the Cowboys right back down the field on the ensuing drive, going 80 yards on 11 plays.
Weeden completed four of four passes on the drive. And saved the best for last, a four-yard touchdown pass to tight end James Hanna after rolling right and delivered the ball to the back of the end zone before taking a huge hit.
Weeden's next drive ended because of receiver Tim Benford wasn't ready for the ball on 3rd and 1. And the clock ran out on the last one at the end of the half.
All in all it was a very good first impression for the former Browns bust who is now one injury away from being the starting quarterback of the Cowboys.
