OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas owner Jerry Jones has suggested that the Cowboys could sit quarterback Tony Romo and other starters for a preseason game in San Francisco over concerns with the troublesome turf at Levi’s Stadium.
Jones made his comments in a radio interview Friday, a day after coach Jason Garrett said he was “confident that the league will make sure that field is safe for everybody to play or we won’t play the game.”
The outspoken Jones later softened his remarks when he met with reporters, saying he has “such respect for what that organization is and what they are going to get done.”
The Cowboys and 49ers play Sunday night.
San Francisco coach Jim Tomsula moved some practices out of the stadium early in training camp after large chunks of sod came loose. There were similar issues when the stadium debuted last season.
