Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had an interesting explanation for keeping quarterback Tony Romo on the roster.

The Cowboys opted to not place him on injured reserve, which would have meant he couldn’t return until November 6.

Jones told the media, “You don’t have to spend a lot of time going over and kind of circumcising the mosquito. You don’t have to do that over there on him because you look back over on the other side that caused you to make the decision, and there’s nobody good enough to take that spot to give you a chance for that if he can come back.” (RELATED: NFL Legend: Tony Romo Could Be Out For The Season [VIDEO])

That is one of the greatest quotes ever that makes absolutely no sense at all. Props to Jones for somehow tying circumcising mosquitos into football.

Romo has been out since injuring his back in the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks.
