The Cowboy have held Romo out of this weeks practice after he suffered a back injury in Monday night’s loss to the Redskins.
Since then, reports have mentioned that Romo could be a game-time decision while others have indicated that it’s unlikely he’ll be back in time Week 9’s game.
Brandon Weeden has taken all of Dallas’ first-team reps this week and would obviously be the team’s starter if Romo is in fact unable to suit up on Monday.
Romo, 34, is in the second-year of his seven-year, $119.5 million contract that included $55 million guaranteed. He still has base salaries of $17 million (2015), $8.5 million (2016), and $14 million (2017) coming his over the next three years.
On the season, Romo has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 1,998 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 quarterback in the league.
We’ll have more updates this weekend regarding his Week 9 status.
