Romo works out…Cardinals’ Palmer signs through ’17
LONDON (AP) — Tony Romo has practiced with the Cowboys for a second straight day as he continues to recover from fractures in two small bones in his back. Coach Jason Garrett says Romo looked comfortable but still hasn’t decided if he’ll start at quarterback against Jacksonville Sunday. If Romo can’t go, Brandon Weeden will get his second straight start for Dallas.
