Romo returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday's session due to illness, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's activity level in Friday's session is yet to be revealed, but it's encouraging that his illness didn't linger long. Furthermore, with another week before the Cowboys will appear in the playoffs, Romo figures to be healthy to back up Dak Prescott next Sunday.

Romo missed Thursday's practice due to "flu-like symptoms," the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the midst of a bye week, the Cowboys are growing ever healthier, but Romo arrived at the team's practice facility and went home after his situation was ascertained. Once divisional-round prep ramps up next week, he'll likely be good to go, but a backup role clearly awaits behind rookie Dak Prescott.

Romo played for only one series in Week 17's loss to the Eagles but made it count, completing three of four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

He showed no rust whatsoever despite having not played a regular season game since Thanksgiving last season, and Romo should head into the playoffs as the Cowboys' primary backup behind Dak Prescott. Expect Romo to be in another uniform next year, but it looks like he can still be a productive QB in the NFL -- for however many games he can stay healthy, at least.

Romo is now expected to see action in Week 17's game against the Eagles, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Previously, word from the Cowboys was that Dak Prescott would start in Week 17 before being replaced by Mark Sanchez, but it now appears as though the team might use all three quarterbacks Sunday. Romo hasn't played in a regular season game since a Thanksgiving loss to the Panthers in 2015, and with Prescott now established as the franchise's QB of the present and the future, this would likely end up being Romo's final game in a Cowboys uniform.

Romo (back) is active against for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Romo will be in uniform and serve as rookie sensation Dak Prescott's backup against the Ravens. The veteran, who earlier this week conceded that Prescott had earned the right to the top job through his stellar play, will be fully ready for duty should the latter go down at any point.

Romo (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated outright Monday that Romo would handle backup QB duties in Week 11. One day later, Romo concurred, stating that Dak Prescott had earned the top gig via his play this season. Romo's designation on Friday's injury report places a cloud over his impending return, but the Cowboys may just want to do their due diligence to ensure he's ready in the event he's called upon.

In a statement to the press Tuesday, Romo (back) acknowledged that he would be the Cowboys' backup QB for the remainder of the season, stating that Dak Prescott had "earned the right to be our quarterback", DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In a classy move by a classy guy, Romo removed any hint of a QB controversy in Dallas, although it was clear at this point that Prescott would be under center for the Cowboys going forward barring an injury. Romo also made it clear that he didn't feel his career was over, however, so expect him to be in another uniform in 2017.

According to Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Romo (back) will be active in Week 11 against the Ravens but will serve as the backup to rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, the Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo practiced in full last week but was still deemed inactive for Sunday's win over the Steelers, which marked the eighth straight victory under Prescott's command. In the midst of such a successful run, the rookie will rightfully remain Dallas' starting quarterback even with Romo slated to return for this Sunday's game against the Ravens. While that solidifies Prescott's stock going forward, it leaves Romo waiting in the wings until further notice, leaving his fantasy value at that of a glorified backup.

Romo (back) is listed as inactive Sunday in Pittsburgh, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

By all indications, Romo has been medically cleared for weeks, meaning his continued absences have been a coaching decision. Impressive play from Dak Prescott has more or less delayed Romo's return, but there's an indication that the veteran will serve as the backup quarterback next Sunday versus the Ravens, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. If Prescott falters at any point, Romo will seemingly be considered for his old appointment, but for the time being, the rookie is the main man in Dallas.
