Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam last week and got a good report on the fractured bone in his back, according to a source.
It still doesn’t change the target date for his expected return _ the Oct. 30 game against the Philadelphia Eagles following a bye.
But it’s good news for Romo and the Cowboys in that the bone is healing fine and everything is seemingly on schedule.
The Cowboys host the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday and play at the Green Bay Packers Oct. 16 before the bye on Oct. 23.

Owner Jerry Jones maintains that Romo will return to the starting lineup when he is healthy, despite the sensational play of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott.
However, Jones has become increasingly coy about Romo’s return.
Regarding reports that Romo will be ready for the Eagles game, Jones said, “The other day it was week 5. Now it's Week 6. You never know, he might be ready to go in Week 6. We don't know that.”
