Tony Romo, to nobody’s surprise, has been activated for Sunday’s Dallas Cowboys game against the Miami Dolphins.
The Cowboys have officially designated Romo as “probable” to play in Week 11, per Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.

The team has long expected to have him back this week — his first eligible game after being placed on the short-term IR after Week 2 — but Dallas couldn’t be happier about the development after losing its last seven games while Romo was sidelined with a broken collarbone.
In fact, owner Jerry Jones recently said he was “singing in the shower” in a show of elation, per 105.3 FM in Dallas.
While it would seem on the surface that the Cowboys are completely out of the playoff race with a record of 2-7, the team is actually only two games behind in the loss column to NFC East leader New York Giants, who are currently 5-5.
Romo certainly seems to think he and his teammates have what it takes to win it all, despite the less-than-ideal start to the season. And maybe it’s not such a far-fetched idea after all. Stranger things have happened, to be sure. However, the Cowboys have a lot of work to do in the locker room, as well as on the field, in order to make the dream become a reality.
