Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that Tony Romo came out of Sunday’s game in London “fairly clean.” The Cowboys quarterback didn’t have any issues during the roughly nine-hour flight home, either.

“He seems like he’s in good shape,” Garrett said.

The Cowboys will practice Wednesday and Thursday this week, however, Romo isn’t expected to do much.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 10. Romo is good to go for a so-so matchup against the Jaguars. His presence gives Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams a boost.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Romo’s limited practice is encouraging. The feeling is that he will play, so we added him to our rankings. If he can’t go, it’s a downgrade for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams given Brandon Weeden’s woeful performance in Week 9.

Jerry Jones expects Cowboys QB Tony Romo to play in Week 10

Dallas News - [Full Article]

Cowboys QB Tony Romo practiced for the first time since injuring his back 10 days ago in the loss to Washington. Owner Jerry Jones believes he will take the field at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

“I’m anticipating him playing,’’ Jones said. “I have no reason to think that he won’t.

“Anytime he can play, we want him to play. We’re a better team, to be trite, with him playing. There’s no such thing as holding him out and foregoing the potential chance that we win.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Romo was at practice on Thursday, but was limited. It's a good sign towards his potential availability, but owners should wait until later in the week before inserting him into their lineups. His return would be a boost for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) did not practice Wednesday. Romo is iffy for Week 10, though the team claims optimism about his ability to play against the Jagaurs. If he can’t go, it’s a downgrade for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams given Brandon Weeden’s woeful performance in Week 9. We currently expect Weeden to play.

Tony Romo expected to play Week 10

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects to have his starting quarterback this week when the Cowboys play in London against the Jaguars.

Although Tony Romo didn't play on Sunday against the Cardinals due to a back injury, Jones sees him playing in England.

"I do see him playing," Jones told the NFL Network. "He's going on the trip to London, and logic tells you that we wouldn't have him make that trip to London and back if we didn't think he was going to play, so it does depend on the type of week he has at practice. But if he has the week we expect, he should be our quarterback."

Jones' comments confirm what CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday morning. La Canfora said that barring any setback, Romo would be the team's starter in London.

Romo was originally injured after he took a knee to the back in an overtime loss to the Redskins on Oct. 27.

Fantasy Impact:

It's not a surprise after the offense struggled under QB Brandon Weeden against the Cardinals. The Jags were ranked 13th in allowing fantasy points to QBs coming into Week 9, so it's not as great of a matchup as you might think. And, Romo's health will still be in question. But, Romo does have some nice matchups coming up, especially the final five weeks of the season.

Report says Tony Romo suffered two fractures in back

Saturday, November 1, 2014, 5:46pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered two fractured transverse process in his back in the loss to the Washington Redskins but there remains a chance he could play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, according to multiple sources.

The Cowboys and Romo have stressed this is not related to the disk surgery he had last December and is not a threat to end his season. Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty suffered a similar injury this season and missed just one game.

The transverse process is a small bone that sticks out from either side of the vertebrae. Romo has been receiving treatment multiple hours of treatment all week at the Cowboys' facility and at home.

Fantasy Impact:

ESPN's Ed Werder reported Romo would either start or be inactive against the Cardinals. He did not practice all week and is officially listed as questionable. Owners counting on Romo need a backup plan. The good news is the Cards-Cowboys game is an early afternoon contest, so we'll know Romo's status by around 11:30 Sunday a.m. Brandon Weeden would start if Romo is inactive and at least offers emergency potential for owners in a bind.

Tony Romo to participate in Saturday walkthrough

After sitting out work all this week with a back injury, Tony Romo plans to participate in the Cowboys' Saturday walkthrough, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a team source.

After the light walkthrough, Dallas will gauge how the quarterback feels.

Fantasy Impact:

At that point the Cowboys hope to have a better feel for Romo's status, but there's still a good chance we won't know until game time. Brandon Weeden would get the start, and if in a pinch, should have a chance to put up decent fantasy numbers if you find yourself counting on Romo this week.

Friday, October 31, 2014, 5:43pm

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 9. Owner Jerry Jones said that the injury is a “function of pain tolerance,” and that it would come down to a game-time decision. Jason Garrett says he’s optimistic about Romo’s availability, though OC Scott Linehan said that “it’s rare” for a quarterback to play without having practiced all week. The Cowboys play early on Sunday, though we would shy away from using Romo since one hard hit could knock him out of the game. Brandon Weeden should post decent numbers if he gets the start.

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.
