"It’s sore,’" Romo said of his back following practice. “"It loosened up a little bit as we moved through it I think. Then, it just gets sore. The normal stuff."
While Romo stopped short of saying he will play Week 10, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reiterated Thursday he still feels Romo will start Sunday's game in London against the Jaguars.
"I’m anticipating him playing," Jones said. "I have no reason to think that he won’t. Anytime he can play, we want him to play. We’re a better team, to be trite, with him playing. There’s no such thing as holding him out and foregoing the potential chance that we win."
Jones didn't stop Thursday talking about Romo's status for Week 10. He went on to talk about how much longer he feels Romo can play in the NFL, despite Romo's back problems, and what Romo has in store for when his playing days are over.
"I think Tony Romo has at least five years," Jones said. "I’m planning on him at least five years of playing at a level that would allow us to be a possible contender.
"He has aspirations and stated to me of potentially being an offensive coordinator in the NFL when he grows up. He has great ideas and very sound ideas."
Early indications are the Cowboys are expecting Romo to be back in the lineup Week 10 after sitting out Week 9. However, if he is sidelined again,
And that was against a defense that entered the day ranked dead last against the pass.
The touchdown didn't even come until garbage time, when Weeden hooked up with star wide receiver Dez Bryant with about a minute to go after failing to connect with him on every drive prior to that one.
It was confirmation enough that Weeden won't be a relevant contributor in Fantasy for as long as he's replacing Romo. Owner Jerry Jones said afterward that he's betting on Romo returning Week 10 at Jacksonville, so that's encouraging.
In the wake of
Weeden did not throw a completion to a wideout until the fourth quarter. He finished 18 of 33 for 183 yards, including a 3-yard score to Dez Bryant with 1:08 left in the game. Weeden missed on his first six throws to Bryant, giving his star receiver no chance.
Weeden threw late on both his interceptions and averaged a paltry 5.5 yards per attempt. The Cowboys hope Tony Romo (back) will be ready to start Week 10 against the Jaguars in London.
