Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (fractured rib) and receiver Dez Bryant (thigh) practiced with the team on Saturday for the first time all week and appear set to give it a go Monday against the Redskins.
Dallas head coach Jason Garrett termed all his injured players day-to-day and they would continue be evaluated.
But watching Romo practice with his teammates and throwing passes to receivers - albeit on a limited basis - is good news for the Cowboys.
The question with him is how much pain can he endure from the fractured rib. He was fitted with a protective vest that he wore in practice and will wear in the game.
That he was able to throw passes without any visible signs of labor is positive.
The same is true for Bryant who has not practiced since the season opener against the Jets because of a deep thigh bruise. He missed last Sunday's game against the 49ers.
While a lot can happen between now and Monday, it seems like things are looking up for Romo and Bryant. If they are your best options at their respective positions, plan on starting them unless something changes.
