Romo will play the New York Giants on Sunday night, then figure out if his surgically repaired back can hold up for the quick Thanksgiving turnaround.

Trying to decide this week what plan will work for next week is premature - the same label he gave to a question about how good a year he's having while leading the Cowboys (7-3) in his eighth full season as the starter.

Romo played well in his return, completing 20 of 27 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He did not throw an interception and was sacked only once in the win over the Jaguars.

Romo missed a 28-17 home loss to Arizona due to a back injury.

Romo is active for the Cowboys against the Jaguars in London despite a back injury that ruled him out of last week's loss to Arizona.

The Dallas quarterback has fractures in two small bones in his back after being injured in a loss to the Washington Redskins two weeks ago but practiced on Thursday and Friday ahead of the game at Wembley Stadium.

Romo practiced Friday for the second straight day in an attempt to be ready for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Coach Jason Garrett, however, still hasn't made a decision on who will start on Sunday.

Romo, who injured his back for the third time in the last 18 months nearly two weeks ago, sat out last week's loss to the Arizona Cardinals and skipped the team's first practice in London on Wednesday. But he participated in drills on Thursday and again on Friday.

Romo's status could be a game-time decision against Arizona on Sunday, according to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Jones reiterated the injury isn't related to a herniated disk that led to surgery after a game against Washington last December.

The quarterback is coming off his third back injury in 18 months, and Jones said on his radio show Wednesday that Romo's injury would not end his season. The owner said his 34-year-old quarterback's availability might come down to pain tolerance after sustaining a back contusion on a third-quarter sack in a 20-17 overtime loss to Washington on Monday. Romo missed about a quarter before returning.

Romo impressed the fantasy world Sunday.

Romo settled for three scoring tosses and one pick as he was 17 of 23 for 279 yards. He should shred the Redskins next week in a major NFC East mismatch.

Romo was 21 of 32 for 250 yards and a pair of TDs in Sunday's upset of Seattle.

Romo is settling in as a solid fantasy quarterback option, averaging 263.3 yards over his last four games with nine TDs compared to just two interceptions.

Romo went 28 of 41 for 324 yards with two TDs and an INT on Sunday against the Texans.

Romo appears to be getting healthier and his play has backed it up with at least 15 fantasy points in each of the last three weeks.

Romo kept with his weekly routine.

Romo skipped another Wednesday practice after strong games the previous two times.

Romo rewarded fantasy owners in Sunday's win over New Orleans, going 22 of 29 for 262 yards and three TDs.

Romo has a 128.6 passer rating over his last two games after posting a 75.1 mark through his first two contests.
