Tony Romo's back getting better, could play Sunday

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice from transverse process fractures in his back that sidelined him a week ago.

Romo said he was sore, but is feling better.

"We’ll keep taking it day by day and just see what happens as we move closer,” Romo said. “It’s improving each day and I think we did some things today that were positive. If it keeps moving in that direction, we’ll have a good chance.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he expects Romo to play.

“I’m anticipating him playing,” Jones said. “I have no reason to think that he won’t. Anytime he can play, we want him to play. We’re a better team, to be trite, with him playing. There’s no such thing as holding him out and foregoing the potential chance that we win.”
