Tony Romo throwing to unfamiliar targets

SAN DIEGO -- For those wanting the Dallas Cowboys to go after Plaxico Burress or any other high-profile wide receiver or make some sort of trade -- Green Bay's James Jones seems to be the favorite -- news of Dez Bryant's injury on early Monday afternoon served only as affirmation.

Without Bryant and Miles Austin, who is going on his third week of missing practice because of a hamstring strain, Tony Romo's starting wide receivers for most of Monday's practice against the San Diego Chargers were Kevin Ogletree and Dwayne Harris, who took over for Andre Holmes after Holmes' back tightened up.

There is a good chance they will be his starting wide receivers Saturday against the St. Louis Rams at Cowboys Stadium.

Can you magine if this was the week leading up to the Sept. 5 season opener at the New York Giants and having to roll with those guys as the lead wideouts?

Good luck, Romo.

Thankfully, for the Cowboys' sake, they have a little more than two weeks before the Giants game and Bryant was only diagnosed with patella tendinitis.

The remedy is simple: rest.

There's no need for the Cowboys front office to send a parody of Carly Jepsen's "Call Me, Maybe" to any of the agents of the receivers available either on the street or on teams with a number of receivers available for a possible trade.

The Cowboys know what they have in Bryant, Austin and Jason Witten, whose preseason ended when he suffered a lacerated spleen Aug. 13 at Oakland.
