Cowboys QB Romo not on active roster vs. Steelers
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is not on the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
That news means the Romo-or-Dak Prescott debate will be put off at least one more week. Prescott, a rookie who has led the Cowboys to a 7-1 record so far this season, has played well in Romo’s absence, throwing for 2,020 yards, 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions.
Romo has been out since breaking a bone in his back during the preseason, but has been practicing.
For the Steelers, tight end Ladarius Green will be making his season debut.
Here’s a full list of each team’s inactive players for Sunday’s games.
