Jason Garrett upbeat about Tony Romo's outlook

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett expressed optimism that quarterback Tony Romo.

The Cowboys play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in London.

Romo has two small fractures in his back. Normally, that means missing one game, which Romo did against the Arizona Cardinals.

“Hopefully, he just progresses,” Garrett said. “He’s gotten better and better every day since the injury. Hopefully he’ll feel better from a pain standpoint and hopefully that’ll positively reflect his ability to move around, get some stiffness out. We’ve got a couple days before we practice. Hopefully he’ll handle the flight well, get over there, blood will be flowing through his body, and he’ll feel good.”

If Romo can't play, Brandon Weeden will start in his place.
