He'll be the new backup quarterback
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Jon Kitna will be the starting quarterback
for the Dallas Cowboys in their finale Sunday if his strained
abdominal muscle heals enough.
It probably won't, though, so second-year reserve Stephen McGee
is likely to make his first career start.
Coach Jason Garrett said Monday the Cowboys still believed Kitna
gave them their best chance to beat Philadelphia. He's gone 4-5
since replacing Tony Romo.
McGee made his NFL debut Saturday night after Kitna strained an
abdominal muscle while throwing a touchdown pass during the second
quarter against Arizona. McGee rallied the Cowboys from an 11-point
deficit to a late lead, only to see Dallas lose in the final
Dallas added another quarterback Monday, signing Chris Griesen.
He most recently played in the UFL and previously played for the
Arena League team that was owned by the Cowboys.
