Cowboys Leaving Door Open For Romo To Be Active Sunday

For the first time all year, the Cowboys are not listing Tony Romo as "out" on the injury report.

After three full days of practice participation, Romo is questionable for Sunday's game with the Steelers. While rookie Dak Prescott is expected to start his ninth straight game for the Cowboys, the backup situation might be uncertain now.

Romo, who suffered a broken bone in his back during the Seattle preseason game back in late August, has been inactive for every game this season.

On Friday, head coach Jason Garrett said the team had yet to decide whether Romo would be active for Sunday's game.

Like he's done all year, Romo is expected to travel with the team to Pittsburgh on Saturday. It's likely the Cowboys will make a decision Sunday morning whether to dress Romo and/or backup Mark Sanchez. It's possible the Cowboys could dress three quarterbacks but with so many injuries to players such as Barry Church and Morris Claiborne, keeping just two in uniform makes more sense.
