Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is progressing well from back surgery and has started the first phase of exercises, according to multiple sources.
Romo underwent a discectomy to repair a herniated disk on Dec. 27. He was home the same day and attended exit meetings at Valley Ranch two days after surgery.
Cowboys officials, including owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett, said last month that Romo had experienced relief from the surgery and was on target to be ready for the start of offseason team activities in the spring.
Weston Richburg (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.
Richburg is one of the Giants' best offensive lineman, and plays a pivotal position at center. The second year player left Week 10 with an ankle injury, and the bye week was not long enough for him to recover. Richburg is questionable for Week 13. Dallas Reynolds will start at center on Sunday against the Redskins. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Rams have waived TE Justice Cunningham.
Zach Hocker signed with the Rams as insurance for the injured Greg Zuerlein, who is questionable for Sunday with a groin injury. Cunningham does not have a reception this season. He could join the Rams' practice squad if he goes unclaimed through waivers. Analysis: Ben Diamond
