Draft Scout Tony Romo News
11/12/14 - QB Tony Romo won't practice much this week if at all as he continues to heal two fractured transverse processes in his back. Romo sat out the Cardinals game two weeks ago before playing through the injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He suffered no setbacks and is no worse for wear after playing with the injury. He will use this week to rest and get ready for the Nov. 23 battle against Giants after the bye.
11/06/14 - QB Tony Romo was limited in practice on Thursday but that is good news. It was his first practice since suffering two fractured transverse processes in his back Oct. 27 against the Redskins. He missed last Sunday's game against the Cardinals but is pointing toward playing against the Jaguars Sunday.
11/05/14 - QB Tony Romo didn't practice Wednesday but he did participate in the walk-through and is expected to try to do something in practice on Thursday in hopes of playing against the Jaguars. Romo has small broken bones in his back that caused him to miss last week's game against the Jaguars and remains painful and sore.
10/29/14 - QB Tony Romo suffered a severe back contusion in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. Though X-rays and a CT scan were negative for a skeletal injury or anything related to the back surgery he had last December to repair a herniated disk, Romo is not likely to practice this week and there is no guarantee he will play Sunday against the Cardinals.
His status has everything to do with pain tolerance and an ability to function in the game. He took a shot to return to the game on Monday, but the soreness and pain remain severe. The doctors are hoping it will subside before the end of the week so they can make a better determination about his status.
It will likely come down to a game-time decision on Sunday.
"I'm just taking it day by day," Romo said Wednesday. "Went and got a CT scan and talked to doc and went through all the stuff you've got to go through. Just take it day by day. I don't want to get into specifics about what it is. We've already looked at it. It will be something you'll look at each day. It's unrelated to (anything) previous. You've got to figure out a way to manage it and go from there."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones emphasized that Romo "can play" from a medical aspect but whether he can withstand the pain and can execute is a big "if."
"At this time, we have nothing medically that would prevent him from playing," Jones said. "What I mean by that is that there's nothing to his injury that technically won't function. This is a function of pain tolerance. But it's a serious issue that you could look at people that have had a similar type injury and they haven't played the next week, so that would cause you some concern about him playing.
"It is not, at this juncture, in any way, a season-ending injury," Jones said. "But it is one that raises the question of whether or not he can tolerate a certain amount of pain in that area. That's about what we know right now."
Romo made it clear that if it was just about
10/27/14 - QB Tony Romo threw a touchdown pass in a 36th consecutive game, tying Brett Favre for the fifth-longest streak in NFL history. Romo left the game midway through the third quarter after being sacked. He returned late in the fourth after receiving an injection in his surgically repaired back, and he said he expects to be ready for the Cowboys' next game.
