Cowboys' Tony Romo (back) probable for Sunday vs. Jaguars
Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo practiced on Friday and is listed as probable to play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Charean Williams reports.
Romo, 34, did not play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9 after fracturing two small bones in his back two weeks ago against the Washington Redskins. He returned to practice for the first time since the injury on Thursday and was optimistic about his availability for Sunday's game.
Head coach Jason Garrett said he thought Romo played well during Thursday's practice, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.
"He looked pretty comfortable to me," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who spoke before Friday's practice, said of Thursday's session. "Clearly, he wanted to get the blood flowing through his body and get his movement back both in the pocket and also throwing the football, and he had a pretty good day yesterday."
Romo has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 1,998 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions, three of which came in a season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
After a 6-1 start, the Cowboys have dropped their last two games and trail the 6-2 Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East.
The Cowboys will kick-off against the Jaguars at 1:00 pm ET on Sunday in London.
