Tony Romo will still go on the road

IRVING, Texas -- Normally players on injured reserve do not travel with the Cowboys. The team will make an exception for Tony Romo.

Interim head coach Jason Garrett said Romo will be part of the Cowboys’ traveling party to Arizona on Saturday and Philadelphia on Jan. 2.

Since breaking his left collarbone on Oct. 25 vs. the New York Giants, Romo has attended every game and served as an extra set of eyes and ears to Jon Kitna and the coaches.

"He has the headset on,” Garrett said. “He understands the plays that are being called and just communicates with Wade Wilson and with Jon Kitna and really with the other guys, too. He's played in this offense more than anybody has, so he has a real understanding of what we're trying to get accomplished.”
