Cowboys QB Tony Romo tore ligaments in his left ring finger in the playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers, but coach Jason Garrett said that is healing fine and will not be an issue this offseason.

"The first time in a couple of years that he's been able to go through the offseason program, I think that will really help him," Garrett said. "He's worked very hard to come back from some injuries that he's had and handled himself really well once the season started to play as much football as he has coming of those injuries. But I think he's going to feel better having that foundation that everybody else gets by going through an offseason program."

Dallas starters see full reps in practice this week

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett practiced his starters this week as if he were playing them in regular role, with no extra reps for Dallas backups.

Fantasy Impact:

It's hard to imagine someone like Tony Romo playing a full game in Week 17 with very little to play for as Dallas is pretty much locked into the third seed. Garrett is at least giving the impression his guys are going the distance, but they should still be considered risky fantasy starts for fear they realistically don't see a full workload.

Cam Newton expected to start Week 16

Cam Newton will start for the Panthers on Sunday.

Just two weeks after walking away from a massive car accident in Charlotte and sustaining a pair of transverse process fractures in his back, the Pro Bowl quarterback will return to the field against the Browns in a make-or-break game at Bank of America Stadium, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday, per team sources.

Fantasy Impact:

The fourth-year signal-caller cleared the final medical hurdle on Saturday, per Rapoport. Newton is playing with an injury similar to that of Tony Romo, which means there will be some degree of pain management. Newton's mobility may be impacted a bit, especially if Mike Pettine loads the box and forces Newton to throw.

Cowboys Beat: Team won't get away from run game without DeMarco Murray

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 9:06pm

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Beat writer Brandon George answered a question about the Cowboys offense passing more if DeMarco Muarry doesn't play:

George: I think you'd see more of Tony Romo without Murray. But I don't think they'd get totally away from the run game. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar are good enough to do well behind this offensive line. Randle has had several big runs of late and would be fine against a Colts team that struggles against the run.

Fantasy Impact:

If anything, the Colts may be able to play a bit more balanced and do more to prevent WR Dez Bryant from hurting them without Murray in the lineup. George added in his Q & A that he "would doubt [Murray will] practice fully at any point this week. Other running backs have come right back and played with this injury. No reason to think Murray couldn't do the same."

Why Tony Romo struggled against the Eagles on Thanksgiving

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cowboys beat writer Todd Archer explains why Tony Romo didn't play well against the Eagles on Thanksgiving:

The Cowboys and Romo believe things will be different in the second meeting. Not in the potential outcome, but in how they play. They won’t use the quick turnaround from a Sunday night game at MetLife Stadium to a Thursday afternoon game at AT&T Stadium as an excuse, but I’ll call it a reason. On a normal Thursday, Romo would be going through his first practice of the week. That time he had to play a game. And, for some reason, he chose not to take a painkilling injection before the game. He was not the same quarterback that day. Things weren't “firing” as he likes to say. Given the state of his back, he needs rest. He had a full week to get ready for the Chicago Bears and completed 81 percent of his passes and threw three touchdown passes.

Fantasy Impact:

We're expecting a better game from Romo as well. In addition to the extra rest (and pain killing injection), he has played better on the road, posting a 15-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio away from Dallas this season.
