UPDATES & NEWS
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he’s also been checking in regularly with quarterback Tony Romo following his back surgery Dec. 27 to repair a herniated disk.
“He says he feels really good,” Garrett said. “I think anybody who has that surgery will tell you the same thing: Initially, they feel great because there’s so much pressure back there on the nerves and whatever goes into that injury. So they get immediate relief, and then they have to recover from the actual surgery itself.
“So he’s moving around and everyone’s optimistic he’ll be back and ready to go for the off-season program.”
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
