Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (virus) played through a stomach virus in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He said Sunday, Dec. 1, that he took some medication for his illness but should be fine.
Huddle Up: Hopefully this means he will bounce back with a great game this week.

The Dallas Cowboys believe QB Tony Romo (ribs) is healthy enough to be able to throw deep passes again. Romo was not throwing deep passes before because he was affected by a rib injury.
Huddle Up: Hopefully this is good news for his and his teammates' fantasy owners.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident that WR Dez Bryant is the best he's been at any point in his career this year, and he thinks he should be getting more balls thrown his way by QB Tony Romo. Romo has completed 72.4 percent of his passes this year, good for third highest in the league, but he hasn't taken many risks, including throwing to a double-covered Bryant. 'The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone the other day that he made that catch,' Jones said. 'He can make that catch with two people on him. You throw him the ball when he's double-covered. He's been thrown to when he's double-covered. You can do that.'
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners think this, too. Fortunately, Bryant has been scoring well despite the fact Romo should be throwing him the ball more.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will likely receive a pain-killing injection before the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Romo has played through similar pain and injections in the past, so this shouldn't be anything that causes fantasy owners to re-evaluate his effectiveness.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday, Sept. 11, that the team is evaluating the No. 3 receiver job after WR Terrance Williams dropped two passes and busted a route in the first quarter which led to an interception by QB Tony Romo. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Sept. 10, that the team will give WR Dwayne Harris more looks at the third receiver spot.
Huddle Up: Williams is a Jerry Jones favorite but struggled in training camp. Harris had some moments late last season and could push Williams for the third receiver job if the rookie doesn't step up his game soon.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's (ribs) X-rays came back negative. Romo is expected to play in the team's Week 2 game.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will have X-rays on his ribs Monday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Romo was sandwiched just prior to halftime of the Cowboys' Sunday night win, but he returned for second-half action and finished with 263 yards and two TDs. Romo has already been wearing rib protection; now there may be even more need to do so. Regardless of what the x-rays say, as of now there's no reason to expect Romo to miss time.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to make his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Romo was held out of Sunday's Hall of Fame game due to his back injury, but the move was precautionary; Cowboy fans and fantasy owners should get their first look at him in action this weekend.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will not play in the teamï¿½s first preseason game Sunday, Aug. 4. The decision was made because of offensive line issues, and the team having five preseason games. The decision was not based on the offseason back surgery Romo had.
Huddle Up: No real worries here as the 'Boys are playing 5 exhibition contests. So even if Romo misses 1 or 2, he'll still be on par with the league's other veteran QBs.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) could play a series in the team's first preseason game Sunday, August 4. Romo would only play one series at most if he does get into the game.
Huddle Up: If Romo plays in the first preseason game -- and, obviously, makes it through without any setbacks -- you can erase any injury concerns you might have with the QB.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has been rehabbing and throwing daily and is expected to be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Of course you're going to monitor the situation, but it's looking good right now for Romo, who will be looking to pick up where he left off in 2012 with WR Dez Bryant.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be fully recovered from his back surgery next week and will try to throw some passes to the remaining players at the team's facility.
Huddle Up: Still far too early to worry about Romo, and if he's throwing without incident next week there's no reason to ding his fantasy value based on the back issues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) was throwing a little bit to WR Miles Austin from about 10 yards Thursday, June 13. He looked healthy.
Huddle Up: It's been quite an offseason so far for Romo, who signed a 6-year, $108 million deal in March and then underwent back surgery in April to remove a cyst. At this time, there's no reason to expect, though, that Romo won't be ready for training camp in a little over a month.

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said QB Tony Romo likely will not take part in the team's upcoming minicamp because the team wants to be cautious with Romo. Jones said Romo's rehab is going well and that Romo has been doing conditioning drills to stay in shape.
Huddle Up: Romo recently had back surgery, which will also cut into his rigorous offseason golf schedule. But right now the Cowboys are planning on Romo being available for training camp and the 2013 regular season, so prospective fantasy owners should prepare similarly.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said the chemistry between himself and QB Tony Romo has evolved into something great. "It's a lot different. At the beginning, Tony was the teacher and I was the student. I felt like at times, it wasn't supposed to be like that. It came to a point where hey, I need to know this. But now, it's a whole different story. We are still working a few wrinkles out but for the most part, I've got everything down."
Huddle Up: Getting your franchise QB and your stud WR on the same page is a positive development for the Cowboys, and for Bryant's fantasy value.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) had surgery to remove a cyst from his back just before the NFL Draft and will miss some OTA action. He's expected to be ready for mini camp next month.
Huddle Up: No worries: Romo's a veteran, and we're talking about a few days of May OTAs after all.

The Dallas Cowboys and QB Tony Romo agreed to terms on a six-year, $108 million contract Friday, Mar. 29, with $55 million guaranteed. Romo will receive a $25 million signing bonus at part of the deal. The Cowboys created $5 million in salary cap space this offseason because of the extension; Romo's salary cap figure for 2013 is now $11.818 million.
Huddle Up: This has been in the works for some time, and now it's official. For all the hand-wringing and turnovers, Romo is actually a pretty good fantasy quarterback. His deal now allows the Cowboys to squeeze a few more players under their salary cap.

The Dallas Cowboys will not be able to use their franchise tag on QB Tony Romo next offseason if they do not sign him to a contract extension. Romo has three years left on his current contract, but the final two years of the contract would void if he is on the roster by the end of the 2013 league year. The team would not be able to place the tag on him because the end of the league year comes after the deadline to use franchise tags.
Huddle Up: With Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan expected to receive new deals soon, Romo could be next in line with decision time looming for the Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys plan to sign QB Tony Romo, who turns 33 in April, to a contract extension this month that may keep him with the Cowboys for the rest of his career. He has one season left on his contract and counts a team-high $16.8 million against the 2013 salary cap. A long-term extension could cut that cap number in half. The only talk around the team surrounding the quarterback position is working out a new deal with him. The Cowboys are not looking to replace Romo; instead, they plan to build around him and would like to upgrade their offensive line to give him more time in the pocket and an improved running game.
Huddle Up: Just a guess that Dallas fans aren't nearly as happy about Romo being a Cowboys lifer as Patriots fans are about Tom Brady's lifetime deal. Romo has demonstrated more than a few flashes of productivity, sandwiched around crippling gaffes. So there's plenty of upside here, you just need to be willing to accept the mistakes that come along for the ride.

Although there have been no talks yet between the Dallas Cowboys and QB Tony Romo regarding a contract extension, there is no way owner and general manager Jerry Jones makes Romo uncomfortable by playing out the final year of his deal in 2013.
Huddle Up: While Romo has been just fine as a fantasy QB -- ranking in the top 10 in each of the past 2 seasons -- he has enough reality to worry about (i.e. performing in the clutch and getting the Cowboys to the playoffs) without having to deal with contract-year pressure in the process. Look for something to get done well before the 'Boys report to camp.

If the Dallas Cowboys gave QB Tony Romo a new deal this offseason, it could save the team a few million dollars on the salary cap for this upcoming season, according to Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com.
Huddle Up: Romo is coming off a typical season: A ranking among the top-10 fantasy QBs (seventh) and no playoff success for the Cowboys. A restructured deal in order to bring in some more help may be Romo's best hope of surviving past the coming season in Big D.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has 14 touchdown passes on throws of at least 15 yards downfield this season, tied for the most in the NFL. Romo has 10 touchdown passes on such throws since Week 9. The Washington Redskins, Romo's Week 17 opponent, have allowed 13 touchdown passes on such throws this season, most in the league, and 18 plays of 30-plus yards.
Huddle Up: Moreover, Romo has 5 300-yard passing games in his past 6 outings, including a season-high 441 yards against the Skins on Thanksgiving. With RGIII guiding the opposing offense, this has all the makings of a points-aplenty season-ending shootout.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo reached the 4,000-yard passing mark for the fourth time in his career. No Cowboys quarterback, including former QBs Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman, achieved that feat more than once.
Huddle Up: Romo was nothing special in the first half of the season but has been a top 5 fantasy QB over the last half. He is playing some of his best ball right now and is an every week starter heading into week 16.
