Tony Romo injury: The Steelers hope Ben Roethlisberger can get healthier with another week under his belt and break their three-game losing streak, but unfortunately they get the red-hot Cowboys. The biggest story going into this one though will be whether Tony Romo (who is returning from injury) or Dak Prescott will be starting at quarterback for the Cowboys.
Prediction: Dallas 24, Pittsburgh 21
All eyes are on Tony Romo coming into Sunday as NFL fans are all asking “is Tony Romo playing?” and wondering if Tony Romo is out. The Tony Romo injury which has sidelined him for all of the 2016 thus far looks to be at least close to fully-healed and has prompted everyone who watches NFL football to wonder if Romo is playing or not.
The often-injured Romo went down in preseason, but has progressed to where he was fully active in practice and his status for Sunday’s game against the Steelers is day-to-day. With Romo participating in practice, some signs point towards the Cowboys veteran quarterback getting back into action, but since his status has not been confirmed, there is still a solid chance we will see Romo out.
With Romo seeing his practice action with the scout team, we believe that Romo will not play this week against the Steelers. Between the severity of the injury Romo is recovering from, his age and the hot streak the Cowboys are riding with rookie sensation Dak Prescott, we think the Cowboys coaching staff will give Romo another week of recovery before inserting him into the line up next week.
It is very likely that the answer to whether or not Tony Romo is playing or if Tony Romo is out likely will not be answered until just before game time Sunday, so you should monitor Romo news closely if you hope to possibly start him in a fantasy league or play Cowboys vs. Steelers in WinView.
