    Despite being sidelined with a fractured collarbone, Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo remains highly involved in matters at Valley Ranch, from week-to-week preparation, to his own rehabilitation. Romo underwent x-rays on Monday, which revealed little other than that he had a fractured collarbone--which, of course, everyone already knew.

    But if Romo has anything to say about it, he’ll at least be ready to play before the season is out; what’s more, Jerry Jones has indicated that, once physically ready, Romo will play regardless of the team’s record, or Jon Kitna’s performance. Which is to say, if Jones has his way, and he will, Romo will play again this season.

    If he doesn’t, it won’t be for a lack of work ethic.

    "He's in early," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "He's in that training room at 7 a.m. every morning. He's in our meetings. Once we go out on the practice fields, they have a whole regimen for him to go through. Some rehab stuff, he's very much involved.

    "We have to evaluate it medically as we go here and continue to evaluate it on a daily and weekly basis and see where he is.”
