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.

Romo (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo was a full practice participant throughout the week, but his availability still won't be determined until after Saturday's coaches meeting. Even if he's deemed game-ready, Romo would presumably just serve as Dak Prescott's backup Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Romo's status for Sunday's game against the Steelers has not yet been determined, according to coach Jason Garrett, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Previous reports suggested Romo is not expected to be active in Week 9, but Garrett wants to see Romo practice in full again Friday, which would mark his third straight day of work, before making a ruling on his status. That decision is anticipated to come when the Cowboys coaches meet Saturday night, and will hinge on whether Romo is deemed "game ready". Although Romo has already been medically cleared to play, wildly impressive rookie Dak Prescott is virtually a lock to continue to start at quarterback Sunday, regardless of Romo's status for the contest.

Although he has been medically cleared to play, Romo (back) is not expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears the quarterback controversy in Dallas will likely last another week. Romo's game-day availability switched from a medical to coaching decision Wednesday after he was was able to log a full practice, but it looks like the team will exercise caution with their veteran signal-caller. Rookie Dak Prescott will look to continue his stellar play under center while Romo is sidelined once again, and the team will have another week to make a final decision on their starting quarterback going forward.

Romo (back) was a full practice participant Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo has slowly but surely ramped up his practice reps over the last three weeks, culminating in the first uninhibited session since suffering a compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae in his back in the latter stages of the preseason slate. On Wednesday, he was expected to handle team and 7-on-7 drills with the scout team, per Todd Archer of ESPN.com, a test that Romo must have passed with flying colors. Because Ed Werder of ESPN relayed Wednesday that Romo's game-day availability has switched from a medical to a coaching decision, the veteran signal-caller may only need to continue his progression this week in order to be active Sunday at Pittsburgh. In the end, though, such a distinction would likely be accompanied by backup duties to rookie Dak Prescott, who has helped the Cowboys reel off seven consecutive wins.

Romo believes he has recovered from his back injury and is ready to play, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo's optimism bodes well for his health and availability over the rest of the season, but it is still too early to tell if he will be able to practice, much less suit up, this week. However, Werder also added that the decision as to when Romo will be activated is now in the hands of the coaches, so the day when the Cowboys will have to decided whether to start Romo or stick with fellow quarterback Dak Prescott is growing nearer.
