Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo continues to be out with a compression fracture in his L1 vertebrate. But there some good news hiding in plain sight before Sunday’s game at Washington.

Romo, per multiple league sources, threw 15-20 passes in pregame warmups on Sunday at Washington. He maxed out at 20 yards.

The goal continues to be a return by Romo to the lineup in Week Eight, the first game following the team’s bye. That night, the Cowboys face the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

Romo suffered the injury in the team’s third preseason game. He initially was expected to miss 6-10 weeks. A Week Eight returns puts him on the outer edge of that range.

    The good news for cowgirls fans is Tony Romo threw in pregame warmups.

    The bad news is he’s now in Intensive Care with 200 broken bones.

    “That night, the Cowboys face the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.”

    Fletcher Cox can only hope.

    It could be Bledsoe in NE all over again.

    Tony coming back only makes this team better, let’s not get silly here. personally love the growth that i’ve seen from Dak and I think he will be the future but he can use 9 being back in the lineup again to learn more from him.

    A healthy Romo is far better than all but about 6 guys in the world.

    That is all.

    I’ll take a young Dax over a injury prone Romo right now….let the kid play, get experience he is the future and the future is right now…..but Jerry is best buds with Romo so cowboy fan you will have to wait on the chance to make a run……..

    Dak has shown alot in these two games, he definitely can be in our plans for the future, but Romo is definitely the starter when he’s ready. Dak still has ways to go and lots to prove but when u have ur franchise QB fully healthy, he’s gonna start. Cowboys with out Romo was evident week 1. If we had him in that game, we walk off with easy win. Dak is the future but Romo still the present.

    I guess you haven’t looked at Romo’s postseason record

    If Dak strings together a winning streak, let him be. Let him in there. Week 1 was only lost by a point. Could’ve been 2-0. Dak is getting comfortable. Don’t kill the flame. Zeke on the other hand, better start putting out or Morris will get the start.

    He’s going against the Eagles they beat the Browns and their fans think dynasty everyone else just chuckles

    Go sit down Tony, you career is over.

    Sunday Night Football seems like the perfect forum for the Eagles to finish Romos’ and the Cowboys seasons.

    If the rookie continues to show poise, and wins Tony should be his backup once healthy. Time to move on from the old and often injured.

    Dak Prescott didn’t impress me one bit in that game yesterday. He didn’t do anything fantastic. He was given dumps, and PA opened up another underneath pass. Dallass didn’t stretch the field, and really there isn’t a whole lot to be excited about. They played the Redskins people not the Patriots. Dallass is just as bad as the rest of the division.

    I bet the Schwartz and Fletch Cox have this marked on their calendars if this is true, circled in red sharpie!

    I’ve always been mind boggled by it, and I’m not sure I will ever understand the hate towards Romo. Other than him being a Cowboy of course. That hate is always out there.

    Other than that, he is a VERY good QB. Sure, he hasn’t won a ring or many playoff games at all. But this is a team sport and I never felt he had the right team around him all at once. It seems when they have the offense, they don’t have the defense and vice versa.

    Otherwise I believe he has the second best QB rating in NFL history. Regardless of big wins, you don’t get something like that by sucking.

    Couldn’t have said this better.

    I think the fumble of the snap on the short field goal attempt his 1st year starting in the WC playoff in Seattle (He started mid season and was still holding on FG’s and extra-points) and a bad playoff game against the NY Gnats in their miraculous 2007 SB run have haunted Romo his whole career. He has never had a complete TEAM around him (thanks Jerrah) but has carried this team for years.
