Romo (back/shoulder) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Panthers. Following his normal practice routine, Romo took part in drills the past two days, even logging a full showing Wednesday. Thus, he's set to take on a Carolina defense that has allowed eight total passing touchdowns to quarterbacks not named Aaron Rodgers this season.
Romo (shoulder/back) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice. Romo reportedly had a couple of other minor concerns even before returning from his major clavicle injury for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. No matter, he turned in an effective outing and is in no real danger of missing a Thanksgiving game against the tough Carolina defense. Romo is reportedly at risk of re-breaking his clavicle, but he didn't appear hesitant in his return.
Romo (shoulder/back) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report, according to the Cowboys' official site. While the back concern was seemingly an addition to the report, head coach Jason Garrett nixed those thoughts, stating that the back and shoulder injuries existed before Romo's return to the field Sunday. With that aside, owners shouldn't worry about an absence from drills to start the week, as his practice routine consists of a DNP, followed by at least some activity the next two days. Consequently, he's on track to suit up Thursday against the Panthers.
Romo completed 18 of 28 passes for 227 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He also gained two yards on a pair of carries. The veteran made his long-awaited return for the Cowboys and led them to victory despite the obvious signs of rust he showed on both turnovers. Romo connected with eight different receivers on the day, and the Dallas attack performed much more efficiently, cranking out nearly 400 yards of total offense. Despite the fact that he is not yet 100 percent healthy, Romo and company will face a quick turnaround, with the Panthers coming to town for a Thanksgiving Day showdown.
Romo is at risk of re-breaking his clavicle by playing in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Fox's Jay Glazer reports. The Cowboys are fitting Romo with special padding to best protect his clavicle, and he's still a little bit rusty in his process of returning.
