Tony Romo completed 22-of-29 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's 38-17 win over the Saints.
He added three scrambles for 23 yards. It was Romo's best game to date. He connected with Terrance Williams for two first-half touchdowns and later hit Dez Bryant on a back-shoulder fade in the fourth quarter. Romo still struggled on his deep accuracy, and wasn't able to get anything going downfield with Bryant. Through four games, Romo is on pace for 3,636 yards with a 28:16 TD:INT ratio. He'll be a low-end QB1 in Week 5 against Texans. Sep 28 - 11:41 PM

Romo is getting Wednesdays off, but practicing Thursday and Friday. He'll be as healthy as he's been all year for Sunday's clash with the Saints.
Sep 26 - 4:09 PM

Romo appears likely to sit out every Wednesday this season. He's a borderline QB1 for what should be a high-scoring game with the Saints on Sunday night.
Sep 25 - 1:59 PM

Tony Romo (back, rest) will not practice Wednesday.

It's the same routine he went through last week. Romo should return to the field Thursday. The Saints-Cowboys game has the highest Week 4 over-under at 53 points. Fire Romo up as a QB1 this week as bye weeks come into play.
Sep 24 - 11:58 AM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-23 passes for 217 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Cowboys' 34-31 win over the Rams.

Romo looked limited by his back injury for most of the game, but managed to find a wide-open Dez Bryant for a 68-yard touchdown. His second touchdown came on a crossing route to Terrance Williams from 12 yards out. Romo's interception was a pick-six to Rams CB Janoris Jenkins on a 3rd-and-8 play in the second quarter. His downfield velocity remains a concern going forward. Romo will be on the QB1 borderline against the Saints in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:28 PM

Tony Romo (back) is probable for Week 3.

Tony Romo (back) is fully expected to practice Thursday.

Romo sat out Wednesday's session due to "tightness" in his surgically-repaired back. He spent that time in the weight room doing core strength and back exercises, but did not even require an MRI. It's no reason for owners to panic.

Tony Romo (back) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a concern that Romo can't get fully healthy. Romo will be fine for Week 3 in St. Louis.
Sep 17 - 12:53 PM

Tony Romo has attempted only five passes over 20 yards in the Cowboys' first two games.

Of the five passes, only one was completed -- a 56-yard catch to Dwayne Harris that was underthrown. Romo attributed his downfield struggles to "poor body positioning" and not decreased arm strength coming off two back surgeries. Still, it's clear the Cowboys are taking fewer chances downfield, and relying more on getting touches to DeMarco Murray. Coach Jason Garrett said he isn't concerned about the pass offense, but admitted that Romo's back injury "remains a work in progress." Romo is averaging 6.9 YPA this season. The Cowboys rank 22nd in the NFL with 201.5 pass yards per game.

Tony Romo completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Romo took a backseat as the Cowboys rode DeMarco Murray and the running game. Thankfully, he made a habit of targeting Dez Bryant, looking his way 14 times, and finding him for 10 catches and a touchdown. Romo still appeared rusty after his limited offseason, often missing low. Either way, it was a major improvement on his Week 1 debacle, and an altogether encouraging afternoon. He has a strong Week 3 matchup in the inept Rams.
Sep 14 - 4:24 PM

In his nine previous games following a three-interception day, Tony Romo has a 94.2 passer rating.

Romo (back) is on the Week 2 injury report, but practicing in full. Romo was out of sorts in the Week 1 loss to the 49ers, tossing three picks in the first 20 minutes. A bounce-back game against the Titans Sunday should surprise no one. He's been especially strong off three-interception performances lately, throwing seven touchdowns against four picks while averaging 279.7 passing yards in the last four instances. Note that Dallas is only a 3.5 point underdog in a game with a healthy over/under of 49.5.
Sep 11 - 9:29 AM

Tony Romo completed 23-of-37 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Dallas' 28-17, Week 1 loss to the 49ers.

All three of Romo's picks came in the game's first 20 minutes, and were forced into double or triple coverage. Combined, there were three Cowboys and eight 49ers in the vicinity of Romo's turnovers. He might have gotten benched were his name not Tony Romo. Romo simply wasn't on the same page with any of his weapons after being babied along this offseason as he recovered from his second back surgery in 16 months. He needs to get better in a hurry if the Cowboys are to avoid total embarrassment this season. Dallas heads to Tennessee next Sunday.
Sep 7 - 7:39 PM

Tony Romo (back) is practicing in full this week.

The media made a huge deal of Romo's back surgery in the offseason, but he was sharp in the preseason and will be all systems go for Sunday's tilt with San Francisco. With a 51-point over-under, the game has shootout potential.
Sep 3 - 8:01 PM

Tony Romo (back) completed 10-of-18 passes for 87 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game.

The Cowboys' offense struggled to move the ball while Romo was on the field, only gaining 110 yards in the first half. More important than the performance, Romo popped back up from a big hit early in the game, and was not fazed by three first half sacks. Romo has completed 14-of-23 passes for 167 yards (7.26 YPA) and one touchdown this preseason.
