Cowboys Injury Update: Tony Romo, Rolando McClain

By on 11/07/2014 11:21:00 AM

The Dallas Cowboys' quarterback, Tony Romo, practiced in London on Thursday for the first time since injuring his back two weeks ago, as reported by Todd Archer from

Romo, coming back from back surgery last season, suffered an injury to his back against the Washington Redskins. He has two transverse fractures in his back.

Senior ESPN Fantasy Analyst, Matthew Berry, re-tweeted this from Adam Schefter on November 6th: "Cowboys QB Tony Romo is practicing today, an encouraging sign for his availability Sunday."

Head coach Jason Garrett would not commit to whether Romo would play Sunday in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, owner and general manager, Jerry Jones, said that Romo will play Sunday. "I'm anticipating him playing, have no reason to think that he won't, and this will be a nice little practice session for him out there today," Jones said. "But my expectations are for him to play."

Romo was asked, and his response was basically if things continue to progress in a positive way, then chances are good he will be able to play on Sunday. Romo has been preparing himself to play this week, going through some throwing drills and walk-through practices with the team.

Regardless of what anyone says, head coach Jason Garett has made it clear that the final decision of whether Romo will play Sunday will be made by the Cowboys medical staff. With that being said, the decision is going to most likely be a game-time decision. Obviously the Cowboys are pushing for Romo to play, as back-up Brandon Weeden has not looked very good in relief of Romo.

Rolando McClain (Knee/Groin) did not practice Wednesday and Thursday, leaving the middle linebacker's playing status unknown as of right now. The team will put out the final injury report sometime on Friday when updating all injured players' statuses for Sunday's game.
