Romo (back) is active for Sunday's contest at St Louis, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Romo is so far directing a balanced offense, but a balky back has threatened his prowess downfield, as evidenced by connecting on only four throws over 20 yards among his 42 completions. Even with Dez Bryant (shoulder) in tow, Romo will have to sidestep a Rams defensive front that boasts impressive pass-rushing talent.

Romo (back) is probable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Romo is struggling to find his pre-injury passing form at the moment, particularly on deeper routes. He completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown against Tennessee, which is probably an improvement over his disastrous Week 1, but it's understandable if Romo's owners don't feel particularly confident heading into this matchup.

Romo (back) practiced fully Thursday, the Cowboys' official site reports.
After Romo and top receiving threat Dez Bryant (shoulder) were held out of drills Wednesday, both returned to practice Thursday, though the wideout's own reps were limited. As the season meanders on, Romo may experience the occasional rest day in order to manage his balky back, but owners seemingly have little to worry about heading into the weekend. Friday's injury report should confirm the quarterback's availability for Sunday's outing in St. Louis.

Romo (back) returned to practice Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.
Romo's participation level won't be known until drills conclude, but he'll more than likely fit in more than Wednesday's walkthrough. Meanwhile, as the season continues, his workload between games may be managed in order to keep his back as healthy as possible. His availability for Sunday's game in St. Louis should be confirmed by the final injury report of the week.

Romo (back) didn't partake in practice Wednesday, ESPN Dallas reports.
According to Rowan Kavner of the Cowboys' official site, Romo's sole activity occurred in the walkthrough portion of practice, as he deals with a tight back. After his 2013 campaign ended prematurely following back surgery, Romo has now landed on the injury report in advance of each of the first three games. His absence is surely precautionary, but be sure to watch his status as the week continues.

Romo (back) completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Titans.
Romo missed a few open receivers during the game which prompted questions about whether his back is fully healthy, but he reiterated after the game that his back is fine. He connected with six different receivers, though Dez Bryant (10 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown) was the only one to post more than four receptions. DeMarco Murray had another excellent game and it seems the Cowboys are more content on having the offense run through him than Romo's arm, which will obviously limit the number of opportunities Romo will have throughout the game.

Romo (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Tennessee.
Romo's back injury doesn't appear to be an issue, but he needs to get his rhythm back before his owners will feel completely comfortable with him in the starting lineup. Although less talented than the 49ers, the Ray Horton-led Tennessee defense won't be a pushover for Romo in Week 2.

Romo (back) practiced in full Wednesday, the Cowboys' official site reports.
Although he completed 23-of-37 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 against the 49ers, Romo also tossed three interceptions, while getting sacked three times and hit on four other occasions. Of particular worry was his inability to complete anything beyond 20 yards, after averaging 3.26 such successes per game over the last three seasons. Nevertheless, he may find the going equally tough against Sunday's opponent, the Titans, who allowed a notable 4.6 yards per passing attempt in their opener at Kansas City.

Romo (back) threw for 281 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions in Sunday's 28-17 loss to San Francisco.
Romo did a good job moving the ball early on, but turnovers and other miscues had Dallas trailing 28-3 at halftime. He was under a lot of pressure against a swarming defense, although that does not excuse a couple of bad throws that he made. He did manage to toss a touchdown pass to Terrance Williams late in the fourth quarter to salvage his fantasy day. Romo will try to bounce back in Week 2, as the Cowboys travel to Tennessee.
