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.

Belief is Tony Romo has back contusion

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo re-entered Monday night’s game against the Washington Redskins late in the fourth quarter after leaving with an apparent upper-body injury in the third quarter.

Romo was sacked midway through the third quarter. Romo, who reached for his back immediately after the hit by Washington linebacker Keenan Robinson, remained on his back for several minutes as he talked with team trainers and a team doctor.

Romo was slowly rolled on his side before he sat up and walked off under his own power. The Cowboys quarterback then headed directly to the locker room to be evaluated. He returned to the sideline midway through the fourth quarter. He threw several passes on the sideline in full pads with his helmet on.

After the game, coach Jason Garrett said Romo has back contusion and X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Impact:

Romo was due to have an MRI on his back Tuesday. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, pain tolerance and functional ability will now be key for Romo going forward. It's certainly a situation to monitor if you count on Romo as your fantasy QB.

Week 8 MNF Injury Report - Robert Griffin III QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, October 25, 2014, 5:00pm

Redskins
QUESTIONABLE
QB Robert Griffin (ankle), CB Tracy Porter (hamstring)

PROBABLE
DE Chris Baker (thigh), S Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder), RB Alfred Morris (ankle), T Tyler Polumbus (knee), LB Perry Riley (knee), T Trent Williams (knee)

Cowboys
OUT
DE Jack Crawford (calf)

PROBABLE
WR Dez Bryant (shoulder), LB Bruce Carter (thigh), T Doug Free (foot), S Jakar Hamilton (not injury related), T Jermey Parnell (chest), QB Tony Romo (back), DE Anthony Spencer (knee, foot)

Fantasy Impact:

RGIII is questionable and was limited at practice all week. The team said they are preparing as of Colt McCoy is starting, but leaving open the possibility Griffin will play. Seems like a longshot, and owners shouldn't count on him. On top of those risks, the Cowboys defense has been playing well this year so it's not a great matchup for Washington on the road.

Also of note, Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and QB Tony Romo are considered probable, as is Washington RB Alfred Morris. All are expected to play and it's especially a great matchup for Bryant and Romo.

Cowboys WR Terrance Williams shining as Dez Bryant's sidekick

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

Now that teams are focusing on the run and doubling Dez Bryant, Dallas is showcasing another reliable big-play threat on the outside in Terrance Williams.

Against New Orleans last week, Williams caught six passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns against one one-on-one coverage because the defense was doubling Bryant.

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said teams that leave Williams open to focus on Bryant are playing right in their hands.

“I think it was certainly our plan. We knew it was going to happen and it’s happened throughout the course of NFL history,” Linehan said. “I’ve been around these great receivers and they command a lot of attention and I’ve told the second receiver, 'You’ve got the best job on the team; you’re going to get the one-on-ones.'"

Fantasy Impact:

Williams only saw 14 targets through the first three games, but was targeted seven times in Week 4 against the Saints. Tony Romo is feeling better, and that should allow him to spread the ball around to the open receiver. With the defense focused on stopping Bryant, Williams shined in Week 4.
