Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) likely a game-time decision for Week 9

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

Two days after suffering a painful contusion to his lower back in the 20-17 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo remains in limbo for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

The good news, according to owner Jerry Jones, is that Romo didn’t suffer a season-ending injury, per results of a CT scan on Tuesday.

But Jones acknowledges Romo’s status remains in doubt because of questions concerning his pain tolerance and ability to function with the injury.

Jones said it will likely come down to a game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact: 

Given the variety of weapons at his disposal, Brandon Weeden would be a Sneaky Start if Romo can't play. The Cardinals have been so-so against quarterbacks this year, checking in with the #15 QB aFPA through eight weeks.
