Tony Romo turns a corner


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he felt stronger in the Week 3 win in St. Louis after a pair of subdued performances to open the season. After throwing a pick-six to make it 21-0 Rams, Romo completed 12 of 15 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns.

"I felt stronger, felt as if everything was firing, activation sequence, blah, blah, blah, stuff like that," Romo told Fox Sports Southwest. "That wasn't necessarily as well as I wanted to probably play the first couple of weeks, but I've played through injury and stuff before. You just kind of manage it and play to the best of your ability."

Romo, who's coming back from December back surgery, posted a 116.8 passer rating that was his highest since Week 5 against Denver last year, noted NFL.com.


Tony Romo throws two touchdowns in Week 3 win vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo lead his team to a 34-31 win on the road in Week 3, completing 18 of 23 passes for 217 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Rams while also adding 14 yards on three rushes.

Romo brought the Cowboys back from a big 21-0 first-half deficit to move the Cowboys to 2-1. He hit Dez Bryant for a 68-yard touchdown in the third quarter on a play where it appeared the St. Louis defense forgot to cover the star receiver. Romo then connected with a wide-open Terrance Williams in the red zone in the fourth quarter, with the receiver waltzing into the end zone.

Despite the low yardage total, Romo turned in by far his best outing of the season Sunday, completing more than 78 percent of his passes and posting a 116.8 quarterback rating. He'll look to keep the offense rolling in the team's Week 4 matchup with the Saints at home.


Tony Romo's back not an issue for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to play without limitations in Week 3 against the Rams, despite sitting out earlier in the week of practice to rest his back. Romo practiced in full Thursday and Friday and is officially probable for Sunday's game.

Tony Romo a questionable starter in Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo might be a quarterback to avoid in Week 3 at St. Louis.

At some point Romo is going to have a big game, and it could happen this week against the Rams, who he thrived against last season with 210 passing yards and three touchdowns. But the Cowboys showed in Week 2 at Tennessee they can win behind DeMarco Murray, and Romo was limited to 176 passing yards and one touchdown.

We're not punting on Romo yet for the season, but his slow start (just 24 Fantasy points combined in two games) is frustrating and easy to bench him if you have a better alternative. 

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Tony Romo returns to practice Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice as expected Thursday after sitting out Wednesday due to back tightness. The Cowboys are preparing to play the Rams Week 3.

Tony Romo assures he'll be back Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who missed Wednesday's practice with back tightness, said he'll be "good to go" for Thursday's session.

"Like we said throughout training camp, you have to be smart," Romo told the Dallas Morning News, adding it probably won't be the first time he sits out practice this season.


Tony Romo dealing with back tightness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Wednesday because he's dealing with back tightness, reports the Dallas Morning News. However, the issue was not serious enough for Romo to get sent for medical tests.

Tony Romo gets the day off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Wednesday as the team continues to manage his comeback from back surgery, reports the Dallas Morning News. Dallas is preparing to visit the Rams on Sunday.

Tony Romo still working on footwork


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said quarterback Tony Romo, who has completed only one pass longer than 20 yards, is still working on his footwork following December back surgery.

"Probably this idea of turning on the run, getting the rust off, has to do with the footwork," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. "Anybody that's played golf, anybody that's been around guys in their hitting slumps, if you want to refer to baseball, knows that footwork all works together there. I think that's what you're seeing."

Some of Romo's passes have lacked velocity, though he made some big throws in Sunday's win at Tennessee. Among them, Romo hit Dez Bryant for 18 yards on 3rd-and-15.


Tony Romo has turnover-free game in Week 2 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo bounced back from a three-interception performance Week 1 to play turnover-free football Week 2, leading Dallas to a lead 26-10 win at Tennessee. The veteran quarterback completed 19 of 29 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown.

Most of Romo's production went to star wide receiver Dez Bryant, who finished with 10 catches for 103 yards and one touchdown. Bryant had a 3-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter, which gave Dallas a 23-10 lead. Romo targeted Bryant 14 times and no other Dallas player had more than 32 receiving yards.

Romo managed to avoid a turnover despite being under constant pressure all day. He was sacked four times in the win. Dallas will be back in action Week 3 at St. Louis.

(9/14/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) and wide receiver Terrance Williams (back) were cleared to play Week 2 at Tennessee. Both players were listed as probable.

Tony Romo: 'I expect us to play better moving forward'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) After a disappointing Week 1 performance, which included three interceptions, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has faced a lot of questions about his health coming off back surgery. But Romo contends he is doing just fine heading into Week 2 against the Titans.

"I feel good," Romo said, per The Dallas Morning News. "I was very disappointed in just the way that we played early in that game last week, but coming off it, the one thing that I’m excited about moving forward is the health aspect of being able to come back and be able to continue to work on things and get better because you have that. I am excited about that, and I expect us to play better moving forward."

The Cowboys haven't started 0-2 since 2010. They finished 6-10 that season. Romo talked about the importance of bouncing back Sunday.

"We have to play our best football," he said. "This is a very important game. We understand that we’re going on the road against a very, very good defense. I don’t know if they’re No. 1 in the league, but they’ve got to be pretty darn close. It’s going to be a great test for us. When you watch them on tape, they’re playing some great football. It’s going to be difficult, but we’ve got to go in there and do what we need to do and try to figure out a way to get a win."


Tony Romo: I wasn't mentally sharp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo blamed a lack of mental sharpness for his three-interception performance Week 1. "Physically, I did a lot of things well," he told the Dallas Morning News.

"Mentally, I felt like I wasn't as sharp as I needed to be in the football game. That's what stood out to me."

Romo said he gained a lot from watching film that will benefit him Week 2 at Tennessee.


How Tony Romo bounces back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has thrown three interceptions in a loss seven times and played the next week, according to ESPN.com. In those seven bounce-back opportunties, Romo completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 1,875 yards (268 yards per game) and 10 touchdowns with five interceptions.

Romo visits the Titans in Week 2 after tossing three picks Week 1 against San Francisco.


Cowboys trying to find ways to help QB not make risky throws


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tried on two occasions during a Week 1 loss against the 49ers to force the football to wide receiver Dez Bryant despite being covered by multiple defenders. Both times Romo threw interceptions.

"I think it’s pretty clear -- you don’t force the ball to people," head coach Jason Garrett said, per ESPN. "Dez is a great player, but [Jason Witten is] a great player too. Terrance WilliamsCole BeasleyDevin StreetDwayne Harris, all those guys are really, really good football players, who, if given an opportunity, are going to come through for us. Tony understands that. Tony’s typically struck a really nice balance about trying to give these guys a chance and understanding how to read things out and throwing the ball to the right guy."

As one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, defenses will pay extra attention to Bryant on a weekly basis. Garrett said it will be up to the coaching staff to find ways to get the football to Bryant without having Romo make risky throws.

"It’s what happens every week in the NFL," Garrett said. "Dez Bryant, if you look at his whole body of work throughout his career, he’s gotten doubled throughout most games every game he’s every play. The same thing with Jason Witten. These guys are really good players. Week in and week out they find ways, we’ve tried to find ways to give them opportunities."


Jason Garrett on Tony Romo: He's human


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was peppered with questions Monday about Tony Romo's careless performance Sunday. Romo threw three interceptions and cost his team a chance at a touchdown by checking out of a running play near the goal line.

Romo got sacked on the play, forcing Dallas to kick a field goal.

"Tony, like everyone else in this room and on the football field yesterday, is human," Garrett said. "He made some decisions over the course of the game that he'd like to have back. That happens every week in the National Football League to every quarterback. You continue to try and learn and continue to try and grow from the situations you're in."


Tony Romo tosses three picks Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a rough game Week 1 against the 49ers.

Romo completed 23 of 37 passes for 281. He threw one touchdown and three interceptions during the contest. With his team trailing 14-3 in the first quarter, Romo started to implode. The Cowboys next three drives would end with Romo throwing an interception. With the Cowboys down 28-3 at the half, Romo had to throw to keep his team in the game during the second half.

Romo's only touchdown of the game came with less than two minutes left. He managed to connect on a two-yard strike to Terrance Williams. The Cowboys failed to recover an onside kick, meaning Romo's night was over.

Romo will take on the Titans Week 2.


Cowboys studs ready to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Terrance Williams are active Week 1 against the 49ers.

Romo was probable heading into the game, and was always expected to play. Williams was questionable due to a back injury, but will give it a go.

Zack Martin, who was aslo questionable, will attempt to play. George Selvie will play as well. He was probable heading into the game. 


Cowboys list final injury report for Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Cowboys have seven players on their final injury report leading up to Sunday's Week 1 clash at home against San Francisco.

Defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and tackle Darrion Weems (shoulder) were both ruled out. Deemed questionable were guard Zack Martin (foot), defensive tackle Terrell McClain and Terrance Williams (back). Quarterback Tony Romo (back) and defensive end George Selvie (shoulder) were the only players ruled probable for Sunday.

Tony Romo to be tested Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should be tested Week 1 against the 49ers. 

It’s been an interesting offseason for Romo. While he’s coming off back surgery, Romo was able to get through the preseason without any issues. He played sparingly, completing 60.9 percent of his passes and throwing for one touchdown. 

The Cowboys better hope Romo knocked all the rust off during the preseason, because the San Francisco DST should test him Week 1. The 49ers were one of the better teams against opposing quarterbacks last season. The team allowed quarterbacks to put up 14.95 Fantasy points per game. That ranked as the sixth-best figure in the league.

At the same time, this is hardly the same 49ers defense. Glenn Dorsey and NaVorro Bowman will miss the game due to injuries, and Aldon Smith is currently suspended. On top of that, the club lost three members of their secondary to free agency. While the 49ers have boasted a strong defense in the past, they seem a lot more vulnerable this season.

With the in mind, Romo becomes a decent start. The Cowboys can put points on the board, and the 49ers defense is far from complete. Perhaps that will allow Romo to take advantage of his matchup Week 1.


Coach confident in Tony Romo heading into Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said quarterback Tony Romo is ready to go for Week 1 against the 49ers after the team took a precautionary approach this preseason in his recovery from December back surgery.

"The thing I kept reminding Tony about as we went through this process starting all the way back in the spring is, the goal is to be ready for the 49ers -- Sept. 7 at our stadium against the 49ers," Garrett said, per the team's official website.

Garrett is pleased with how well Romo has progressed during the preseason.

"I think the last couple of weeks, I think we’ve seen Tony really be himself," he said. "He’s moved around in practice very spontaneously, made a lot of throws. He’s taken hits in games. He’s come back from all that stuff.

"He’s worked very hard to get himself to a point where he’s 100 percent with his back. It’s going to be a work in progress for him just like it would be for anybody coming off of any kind of injury."


Tony Romo held up 'fairly well' to first hits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said quarterback Tony Romo held up "fairly well" throughout Saturday's game, the first time Romo had really been hit since his December back surgery, reports ESPN.com. Still, Garrett gave Romo the day off Monday.

"The idea was to give him the opportunity, in a light practice, to collect himself and take the day off," Garrett told the website.

Garrett said Romo is "doing OK" and will practice Tuesday.

Tony Romo not practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who was sacked three times in the first half Saturday, is not practicing Monday, reports ESPN.com. Romo spent some time in a cold tub following the game but said he felt good after taking his first hits since having back surgery last December, the report said.

Cowboys' offensive line does not inspire confidence


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he's concerned about his starting offensive line, which is supposed to be a team strength but allowed three first-half sacks of Tony Romo on Saturday against the Dolphins. "That concerned me," Jones told the Dallas Morning News, "not because of being able to correct what it takes to block them, but it just concerned me that he was taking those sacks."

The line also did not clear holes for DeMarco Murray. He gained 18 yards on six carries.

"They’re a strength, but it shows that they’ve got some more work to do," Jones said of the line. "I think that’s the kind of thing they’ll have plenty to work on and when they do they’ll make them better for San Francisco.

"I’m just glad we were able to sit here and talk about that without talking about Romo being a little tight in the back."
