Considering he's been deemed a game-time decision, it comes as no surprise that the
Romo took a knee to the back Monday night and has been ailing since. He did not practice Friday.
His absence would force backup
Despite his continued inactivity in practice, however, the Cowboys have indicated that Romo remains a game-time decision.
"If it turns out to be just the pain tolerance, I will play," Romo said. "That part has never been an issue. But you’ve got to wait to see.
"It will be about your ability to be productive in some fashion. That part of it, we will continue to evaluate."
Romo took a knee to his back in the third quarter Monday night. He underwent a CT scan Tuesday, but the team hasn't specified what was found.
"I don’t want to get into specifics about what it is," Romo said. "It will be something you’ll look at each day, figure out a way to manage it and go from there.
"It has nothing to do with back surgery or anything like that. It could have happened years ago and it would have been the same thing. It’s part of playing football."
To play Sunday, Romo said, "at a certain point there needs to be a shift in the way you feel that shows you’re able to do the fundamental things that need to get done. From there, you need to get the doctor’s clearance.
"You take those steps and go."
Romo, who had offseason back surgery, did not practice Wednesday.
Romo was able to return late in the fourth quarter, so Weeden likely will be back on the bench Week 9 against Arizona.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Salters there's a chance Romo could return.
