Tony Romo to stay on 53-man roster this week

As long as they are mathematically alive for a playoff berth, it appears the Dallas Cowboys will hold out hope for the best.

That means injured quarterback Tony Romo will remain on the active roster for now.

Asked if the team will consider placing Romo on injured reserve to clear a roster spot, Garrett said: “Don’t anticipate doing anything with that right now.”

Romo, of course, is sidelined for the rest of the regular season with a fractured left collarbone. He missed seven games earlier this season with the same injury, and re-fractured it against the Carolina Panthers on Thanksgiving.

There is a possibility he could be ready to play by the playoffs, should the Cowboys somehow get in. But it’s unlikely, as the Cowboys are 1-8 without Romo starting at QB so far this season.
