Cowboys Officially Activate QB Tony Romo From Short-Term I.R.

Todd Archer of ESPN reports that the Cowboys have officially activated QB Tony Romo off the short-term injured reserve list on Saturday.

This is, obviously, just a formality, but the Cowboys waited until today to ensure that Romo was ready to go for with Week 11 matchup against the Dolphins.

Romo suffered a broken left collarbone back on Sept. 20 and the Cowboys have proceeded to drop seven straight games without him.

Surprisingly enough, the gap between the Cowboys and leader in the NFC East isn’t insurmountable, so it will be interesting to see if they’re able to jump back in the race in the coming weeks.

Matt Cassel will server as Romo’s backup for the remainder of the season now that they’ve waived Brandon Weeden.

Romo, 35, is in the third year of his seven-year, $119.5 million contract that included $55 million guaranteed.

This season, Romo has throw for 551 yards while completing 75 percent of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and two interceptions over the course of two games.
