Cowboys’ Romo full go in practice for 1st time since injury

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo has been listed as a full practice participant for the first time since the Dallas quarterback broke a bone in his back in a preseason game in August.

The 36-year-old Romo ran with the scout team in practice Wednesday. Rookie Dak Prescott remains the starter with the Cowboys (7-1) surging to the best record in the NFC with a seven-game winning streak.

Dallas visits Pittsburgh (4-4) on Sunday.

Coach Jason Garrett said the starting quarterback gets almost all the reps with the first team in practice, and that plan was no different this week.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who went 13-0 in the regular season as the starter when he was a rookie in 2004, said it would be “really hard to kind of change that position” with the Cowboys rolling the way they are.
