FRISCO, Texas — Even though Tony Romo played in just one series last season for the Dallas Cowboys because of a back injury suffered in a preseason game, he developed a strong relationship with Ezekiel Elliott. Based on that, he thinks the young running back should be given some room to figure things out.

“With Zeke, he’s a friend and I know he’s a good kid and he’s just trying to find his way,” Romo said on the “Ben and Skin Show,” on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Thursday. “He’s going to be in a position that’s always going to be in the spotlight. People are going to take photos. They’re going to talk about it.”
