Tony Romo completed 22-of-31 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas' Week 15 win over the Eagles.
All three of his touchdowns went to Dez Bryant. Romo took advantage of Bryant being matched up with Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher, targeting him seven times. He now has a 6:0 TD/INT ratio in two December starts and will remain a QB1 in Week 16. The win puts the Cowboys in the driver seat for the NFC East. Dec 14 - 11:59 PM

Updating an earlier item, Tony Romo isn't playing through a broken rib.

The rib revelation came from ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins, but he actually just misinterpreted an NFL Network interview. Either way, Romo looked a bit ginger on Thursday evening, but has 10 days to heal up for Dallas' Week 15 trip to Philadelphia. He's a locked-in QB1.
Dec 5 - 12:22 AM

Tony Romo completed 21-of-26 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas' Week 14 win over the Bears.

For the second-straight week, Romo seemed to lack his normal flexibility, and may have been favoring his troublesome back. It didn't matter against the woeful Bears, however, as he often found uncovered pass catchers for easy gains. The three-score effort was Romo's third in four starts, and fifth of the season. Although Romo struggled against the Eagles on Thanksgiving, he'll be a high-end QB1 for the teams' Week 15 showdown in Philadelphia.
Dec 4 - 11:45 PM

Tony Romo (back) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

The Cowboys are playing the Bears at Soldier Field on Thursday night, so they held a practice Monday. Romo is in no danger of missing, but his effectiveness is in question after his passes lacked zip in Dallas' Thanksgiving loss.
Dec 1 - 4:27 PM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-29 passes for 199 yards with two interceptions in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Romo struggled to move the offense despite a matchup with an Eagles defense that allowed 345 yards to Zach Mettenberger last week. Both of his interceptions came on bad underthrows, and he had a third pick overturned by defensive holding. Romo finished without a touchdown for just the first time in 38 games. He's on pace for 3,624 yards with and a 29:11 TD/INT ratio this season. Romo will be a back-end QB1 against Chicago's bottom-five secondary in Week 14.
Nov 27 - 8:10 PM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-26 passes for 275 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 12 win over the Giants.

The Cowboys offense struggled to get going early, with Romo throwing three of his four touchdowns in the second half. He targeted Dez Bryant a team-high nine times, connecting with him on two of his scores. Romo looked fully healthy coming of the Cowboys' bye. He lost a fumble on a sack by Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka, but hasn't thrown an interception in his last three games. Romo will be a high-end QB1 for next week's Thanksgiving matchup with the Eagles.
Nov 24 - 12:24 AM

Tony Romo (back) returned to practice Thursday.

He was "full." Romo sits out Wednesday practices weekly to rest his balky back. He'll be ready to rock as a back-end QB1 against the Giants Sunday night.
Nov 20 - 12:25 PM

Tony Romo (back) will not practice Wednesday.

Back to his normal Wednesdays-off routine. Romo will be fine for Week 12 against the Giants with the Cowboys coming out of their bye. He's a QB1/2.
Nov 19 - 11:51 AM

Tony Romo (back) confirmed he emerged from Sunday's win over the Jaguars without setbacks.

Romo stayed in during garbage time of this blowout, confirming his back is feeling fine. "Just sore," Romo said afterward. "Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play." He should be close to 100 percent when the Cowboys come out of their bye against the Giants in Week 12.

Nov 9 - 6:36 PM

Tony Romo (back) completed 20-of-27 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns against the Jaguars in London Week 10.

Romo was on point early, throwing for 225 yards and three touchdowns before halftime. It could have been an even bigger day. Romo missed Jason Witten early in the game for what would have been a sure touchdown, and underthrew Terrance Williams in the end zone during the fourth quarter. Romo will rest through the Cowboys' Week 11 bye before a big game against the Giants Week 12.
Nov 9 - 3:55 PM

Tony Romo (back) is officially active for the Cowboys' Week 10 matchup with the Jaguars.

Romo practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and got in a full session on Friday. He was never expected to miss the game, but could be far less than 100 percent. Dallas should ride DeMarco Murray, making Romo nothing more than a QB2 even in a great matchup with Jacksonville.
Nov 9 - 11:42 AM

Tony Romo (back) is probable for Week 10 against the Jaguars after practicing in full on Friday.

Romo will get the start. But he's a borderline QB1/2 at far less than 100 percent. It's going to be the DeMarco Murray show for Dallas. The Jaguars are one of two defenses with multiple sacks in each game this season.
Nov 7 - 10:42 AM

Tony Romo (back) practiced again Friday and is considered "good to go" for Week 10 against the Jaguars.

After receiving treatment Wednesday, Romo practiced both Thursday and Friday. Jerry Jones has said all along that he anticipates Romo playing Sunday. We'd expect the Cowboys to really pound the ball with DeMarco Murray on the ground as a way to protect Romo's back. Although the Jaguars don't do much well, they have a legitimate pass rush as they're tied for third with 27 sacks.
Nov 7 - 9:21 AM

Tony Romo (back) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

Romo even took some individual reps as the Cowboys get set for Sunday's game in London against the Jags. "We'll see. We'll take it day by day," Romo said after practice. "It's improving each day, and I think if we do something positive each day, there's a good chance." Jerry Jones is optimistic about Romo's chances of playing through two fractures in the transverse process in his back. "I'm anticipating him playing," Jones said. "I have no reason to think that he won't." We'll still consider Romo a game-time call for this 1pm ET start.
Nov 6 - 8:54 AM

Tony Romo (back) is not practicing Wednesday.

No surprise here. Romo made the trip to London, but spent Wednesday at the team hotel receiving treatment. He's dealing with two fractures in the transverse process in his back, an injury that caused Baylor QB Bryce Petty to miss only one game earlier this season. Expect the Cowboys and Romo to do everything they can for him to be able to play against the Jaguars after Brandon Weeden's dumpster fire of a performance vs. Arizona.
