News: Romo (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona.
Impact: Romo didn't practice all week, making it hard to buy in to the optimism coach Jason Garrett expressed all week about Romo's chances of playing against Arizona. Romo is shaping up to be a game-time decision Sunday, but luckily for his owners Dallas has an early kickoff.
News: If Tony Romo (back) is unable to play against Arizona on Sunday, Weeden would start for Dallas.
Impact: Romo didn't practice all week but was listed as questionable, making him a game-time decision against the Cardinals. Weeden has a strong arm and arguably good pedigree as a former first-round pick, but he's still a bust with accuracy issues, and he struggles to read defenses. Even against a vulnerable Arizona pass defense, it would be difficult to sign off on him outside of leagues that start two quarterbacks.
News: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that Lee (knee) will likely play weakside linebacker when he returns to action in 2015, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.
Impact: Lee is one of the better linebackers in the NFL, but he has had serious trouble staying healthy the last few seasons, and the Cowboys may move him off of the middle linebacker position to both minimize their risk and limit his snaps. It's far too early to call this a final decision, but it appears Lee may have ceded the starting middle linebacker job to the rejuvenated Rolando McClain for good.
News: Romo (back) did not take part in Friday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Romo did not practice at all this week, but unless he is ruled out Friday afternoon, he still has a chance to play Sunday against the Cardinals. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated Friday morning that Romo's availability for Sunday's game would likely come down to a game-time decision.
News: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hinted Friday morning that Romo will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Jones said that Romo is moving around and feeling better, but he also said indicated that a final call on Romo's status will not be made until game time, so those considering using him this week will likely have to wait until Sunday to find out whether or not he will play.
News: Romo is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona after missing practice all week with a back injury. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett said Friday that Romo would be a game-time decision.
Impact: He took a direct hit to his surgically repaired back on a sack in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to Washington. After going to the locker room for treatment, Romo returned for Dallas' final two series. Brandon Weeden, who replaced Romo and led two scoring drives against the Redskins, will make his first start since last Dec. 1 for Cleveland if Romo doesn't play.
