Cowboys QB Romo Feeling Better; Barber Misses Practice

While it looks like Tony Romo’s back is getting better, the team is still not sure it will have the services of RB Marion Barber on Saturday night when they play the Ravens in the final game at Texas Stadium. “Tony Romo practiced (Thursday) and felt a lot better,” coach Wade Phillips said. “It looks good for him for Saturday.”

Romo was able to finish the game vs the Giants last week, so going this week should not be all that much of an issue as long as he does not have that much of a setback tomorrow in practice. “If I’ve been able to do it once already, I can’t imagine it ever being worse than that,” Romo said Thursday. “I did it last week so if that’s the worst that it gets, I should be able to play either way.”

As far as Barber goes, he didn’t practice today, and and is again considered a game-time decision, like he was a week ago when he had only 2 yards on eight carries. Barber has been hampered by a broken pinkie toe that forced him to miss a game.

“We just have to see again game day on him as far as being able to play,” Phillips said.
