Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo's ribs feeling better
Cowboys QB Tony Romo suffered bruised ribs in the opener and took a pain-killing injection prior to his Week 2 game. While Romo will likely get another shot before this Sunday's game against the Rams, he says the ribs are feeling better. “It does feel better now than it did last week," Romo said. "It’ll just keep getting better and better this week.” While beat writer David Moore notes that Romo's "accuracy declined noticeably in the fourth quarter" of last week's game, he still finished 30 of 42 (71%) for 298 yards with 1 TD and 0 INTs. The ribs shouldn't be an issue for this weekend's game. Romo is a solid QB1.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo active
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ribs) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He figures to be playing through some pain and has a tough matchup. That has him as a low-end starting option for Week 2.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo probable for Week 2

game against the Chiefs. He might be
playing through some pain and carries more risk than normal. Plus it’s a tough matchup. Consider Romo a low-end QB1 for Week 2.
Tony RomoDAL -QBX-rays negative on Romo's ribs
X-rays on Cowboys QB Tony Romo's ribs came back negative. Romo missed 1 play in Sunday night's win after being sandwiched by a pair of Giants linemen. He returned for the 2nd half, though, and looked fine. "We feel optimistic with the tests coming back negative," Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said Monday. "He'll be sore but something he'll be able to play with, as it looks right now." We'll keep an eye on Romo's status over the next few days, but he should be under center for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo plays through rib injury
Cowboys QB Tony Romo took simultaneous hits to both sides of his ribs from a pair of Giants defenders near the end of the 1st half of Sunday night's game. Romo was in obvious pain and was sidelined for Dallas' final play of the half. But he returned for the 2nd half and finished out the game. “You take some hits sometimes and you’ve got to come back from it,” Romo said afterwards. “We had plenty of guys do the same thing and it was no different. You get back out there and play. I’ll be fine.” Romo didn't undergo x-rays or take any pain-killers at halftime, and he looked just fine in the 2nd half. We'll keep an eye on his status this week, but he should be ready for next Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo will be ready for training camp
ESPN's Ed Werder confirms that Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He underwent surgery in April to remove a cyst on his back, but the procedure was not considered serious. Romo was held out of minicamp but has been "rehabbing daily and throwing regularly," per Werder. There's no reason to think the back will be an issue in 2013. With an ADP sitting in the 7th round, Romo is one of our favorite value picks at QB.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo will be held out of minicamp
Cowboys QB Tony Romo will be sidelined for this week's minicamp for what owner Jerry Jones called "precautionary reasons." Romo underwent back surgery in April and will likely be held out until training camp. It's not a major concern for the 7-year starter. It won't take him long to regain his top-notch chemistry with Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Jason Witten. Romo carries top 8 fantasy upside in 2013 and looks like one of the better value picks at the QB position. His current 12-team ADP is sitting in the 8th round.
Tony RomoDAL -QBRomo had minor back surgery
Cowboys QB Tony Romo underwent surgery last month to remove a cyst on his back. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says it “could” keep him out until training camp, but Romo believes he’ll be ready for June minicamp. He’s already been cleared to resume throwing. “If this was the regular season and I had to play next week, I could,” he said. “This is just about being smart. That’s why I did it now. This will have no effect on training camp. No way will it have an impact. And I still think there’s a good chance I’m on the field for mini-camp.” There’s cause for concern any time a back is involved, but this sounds like it was a truly minor procedure. And Romo, a 7-year starter, doesn’t need the practice time this spring. We’ll continue to track his status, but consider his 2013 fantasy outlook unaffected.
Tony RomoDAL -QBgets 6-year extension
The Cowboys and QB Tony Romo have agreed to a 6-year, $108 million contract extension. He'll receive $55 million guaranteed -- 2nd most in NFL history behind only Tom Brady. The deal keeps Romo in Dallas through the 2019 season, when he'll be 39. Say what you want about his performance in big spots, but Romo has been one of the best QBs in the game over the past 6 years. He ranks among the top 10 in passing yards, TDs and completion percentage during that span. He's also finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in each of his last 5 healthy seasons. With Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Jason Witten all back, Romo should be in that mix again in 2013.
Tony RomoDAL -QBplayed through cracked rib
Cowboys QB Tony Romo revealed that he suffered a cracked rib on his left side late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Redskins. He never left the game, but threw for just 99 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT after halftime. Romo's 2012 season will be remembered as yet another time he was unable to come through in the clutch. But he played some of the best ball of his career, completing 66% of his passes for a career-high 4,903 yards. Despite the absence of a clutch gene, Romo will be back as Dallas' starter in 2013.
Tony RomoDAL -QBactive, starting
As expected, Cowboys QB Tony Romo (hand) is active and starting against the Giants tonight. He won't be at 100%, but it's a sweet matchup. Consider Romo a risk/reward fantasy option.
Tony RomoDAL -QBprobable for Week 17
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (hand) made it through a week of limited practices and is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Giants. His hand is still a bit swollen, and Romo certainly carries some risk as a fantasy option this week. But he's squaring off against a team ranked 28th in fantasy points allowed to QBs. Romo posted 321 yards and 4 TDs against the G-Men just a few weeks ago. There's plenty of upside here.
Tony RomoDAL -QBhand improving
While Cowboys QB Tony Romo (hand) has been limited in practice the past 2 days, he's pleased with how his injured hand is progressing. "I just think everything is coming together like we thought," Romo said. "Each day is getting a little better. We'll be good to go this weekend." The hand is still a little swollen, and Romo has been throwing with it lightly taped. He'll start Sunday night's game against the Giants, but it remains to be seen if his performance will be impacted by the injury. Romo is a risk/reward fantasy play in Week 17.
Tony RomoDAL -QBlimited Wednesday
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (hand) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. While he didn't take the number of reps he normally would, HC Jason Garrett said that Romo had no problems gripping the ball. He remains on track to start Sunday night's do-or-die game against the Giants.
Tony RomoDAL -QBexpects to play Week 17
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (hand) confirmed that he fully expects to play against the Giants next weekend. “I’ll be fine,” Romo said. “I think it’s just going to be a few days, do all the stuff [in rehab], but I’ll be good to go next week.” X-rays on the hand came back negative, although the FOX broadcast showed Romo's hand incredibly swollen just minutes after he banged it on DE Jason Babin's helmet. He probably won't practice much this week, but we'd be shocked if Romo didn't play in a must-win game next Sunday.
Tony RomoDAL -QBleaves with hand injury
Cowboys QB Tony Romo suffered a right (throwing) hand injury after taking a big hit in the 1st quarter of Saturday's game against the Eagles. Dallas' game is now meaningless with the Giants defeating the Jets, so don't expect to see Romo back in there even if the injury isn't serious. We'll pass along an update when we get one. QB Stephen McGee has entered the game for the Cowboys.
Update: X-rays on Romo's hand came back negative. It's swollen, though, and he won't re-enter today's game. The good news is that he appears to have a solid chance of playing against the Giants next week.
Tony RomoDAL -QBprobable for Week 6
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ribs) put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He'll continue to wear a flak jacket and will take another pain-killing injection, but Romo is healthier now than he's been the past few weeks.
Tony RomoDAL -QBstill protecting ribs
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ribs) will take another pain-killing injection and continue to wear a kevlar vest for Sunday's game against the Patriots. "I'm feeling better," Romo said. "Every week that goes by gets better and better. Hopefully in about a couple of weeks it'll be back to normal. Until then we have to do some little things to get over it." Romo has been practicing in full this week and is in no danger of missing the game. He's a high-upside option in the plus matchup, but this is a reminder that he still comes with some risk.
