IRVING, Texas - If its a question of tolerating pain, Tony Romo says he will play Sunday against Arizona — and history supports him on that point. wholesale jerseys .The issue in the 34-year-old Dallas quarterbacks mind is whether he can run the offence while dealing with his third back injury in 18 months. He said Wednesday he doesnt know, which goes to owner Jerry Jones point that it could be a game-time decision against the Cardinals.Romo said the injury that sidelined him for about a quarter before he returned late in regulation of Mondays 20-17 overtime loss to Washington was more than a contusion, referring to coach Jason Garretts description. He wouldnt be more specific about the damage from a direct hit to his surgically repaired back on a third-quarter sack by linebacker Keenan Robinson.The latest injury isnt related to the herniated disk Romo played through without leaving the game in a come-from-behind win at Washington before surgery five days later last December. And Jones offered that it has nothing to do with the cyst Romo had removed from his back in April 2013, sidelining him the entire off-season last year.All in all, Romo said he dodged a bullet.Anytime someones had back surgery youre always a little bit nervous when you get hit in a specific instance like that, Romo said. The positive is its completely unrelated to the disk or anything that could be long term, per se. So that part of if, yeah, thats a positive. As far as feeling great, I feel like thats a negative. But I think that will come.Romo has said the pain he endured last year in Washington was worse than a 2011 game in San Francisco, where he slipped past doctors in the locker room and led a comeback win with cracked ribs and a punctured lung. He even played the next week, beating the Redskins.I dont know that Ive ever seen anybody who has a tougher will, his mind, and it helps him tremendously with pain threshold, Jones said. Combination of those two things, hes as tough-minded and physically tough a player as Ive ever been around.And thats why Romo says pain wont have much to do with the decision.It will be about your ability to be productive in some fashion, Romo said. That part of it we will continue to evaluate.Brandon Weeden led the Cowboys (6-2) to points on both possessions that Romo missed, and he will start against the Cardinals (6-1) if Romo cant play. That would also mean undrafted rookie Dustin Vaughan would be activated from the practice squad for the first time.Weedens last start was last December for Cleveland, which drafted him in the first round in 2012 and started him immediately before dumping him with a 5-15 career record after two seasons. He signed with the Cowboys in the off-season.Im going to treat it no different, said Weeden, whos had more quality practice time than most backups because of the way the Cowboys have managed Romos workouts. If hes able to go, thats the best thing. Well see how everything plays out.Garrett offered little insight into Romos status, refusing to discuss anything beyond Wednesdays work. But Jones indicated on his radio show that Romo would skip Thursdays practice because thats the first full workout of the week in pads. All season, Romo has missed the first practice, typically on Wednesdays, because of his post-surgery routine.Romos trying to make the week as normal as possible.I think you just prepare like you always do, he said. You watch tape. You do what you do in a normal week, and you go and play football.While Jones was relieved that Romo didnt have a season-ending injury, it was the third different back problem for the first player in franchise history to sign a $100 million contract. Hes in the second year of a six-year, $108 million extension with $55 million guaranteed.Ill bet if we looked around the league, well see a lot of times you have contusions and you have issues with backs, Jones said. But in no way would it impact whether Tony was our quarterback or not, unless he just cant play.The Cowboys might not know that answer until Sunday.NOTES: LB Justin Durant (torn right biceps), the teams leading tackler, and practice squad LB Troy Davis (groin) were placed on season-ending injured reserve. LB Tim Dobbins was signed to the active roster, and LB Will Smith was added to the practice squad. ... The Cowboys waived G Rishaw Johnson (California-PA) from the practice squad and signed G Jeff Baca (UCLA) in his place on Wednesday.___AP Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins, in Arlington, Texas, contributed to this report.___Online:AP NFL website: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at cheap jerseys from china . Louis.Bochy said before Sundays regular-season finale against San Diego that he felt comfortable with Bumgarner or Jake Peavy on the mound. But given Bumgarners success the last few years, he said I dont think there was any question who you pitch that game. wholesale nfl jerseys . 5 Baylor wiped out a 21-point deficit in the final 11 minutes to beat No. 9 TCU 61-58 on Saturday.PORT LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets closer Bobby Parnell threw batting practice Saturday, facing batters for the first time since his 2013 season was cut short by a neck injury. Parnell last pitched in a game on July 30. He missed the final two months of the season and had surgery Sept. 10 to repair a herniated disc in his neck. The right-hander threw 36 pitches to David Wright, Daniel Murphy and Eric Young Jr. "You work all off-season throwing bullpens with no batters in there and it seems like you cant miss a spot," Parnell said. "You throw a hitter in there and it becomes 100 times harder. It feels good to get out there and face some guys, face some hitters and find the strike zone with some intensity turnedd up. cheap jerseys. It was a nice feeling today." Parnell said he was able to keep the ball down and didnt feel any discomfort in his neck or right arm. "Ive been taking a lot of baby steps," he said. "I feel great, my arm feels good, neck feels good. Everythings going well. But as far as today, this feels like a big mental hurdle. I didnt know how I would react to balls coming off the bat and I felt strong out there. I felt good and felt like I had some reaction in the neck, so everythings good." The Mets are being cautious with Parnell, but he is currently scheduled to throw a second batting practice on Tuesday. He said hell throw at least one more batting practice session before getting into a game.
