Cowboys reportedly get good news on Tony Romo's MRI results

BY foxsports • October 10, 2016

The Dallas Cowboys are sitting pretty after five games, boasting a 4-1 mark with rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott playing big roles in the team's fast start.

And now it appears Dallas is close to getting its franchise quarterback back on the field. According to NFL Network, the Cowboys received good news from Tony Romo's MRI, which revealed Monday that his back is healing well and he's on track to return after the bye week.

Romo suffered a broken bone in his back late in August during a preseason game. Despite the injury, the Cowboys haven't missed a beat this season thanks in part to Prescott, who has yet to throw his first career interception.

Despite Prescott's stellar play, owner Jerry Jones insists that Romo will be the starting quarterback once he's cleared to return. We'll see if the Cowboys follow through on that if they continue to rack up wins.
