News emerged this week that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was a full participant in practice for the first time since he injured his back earlier this year in the preseason.
This puts him one step closer towards making a return to the field for the Cowboys, and many thought he would be active for when the team plays against the Steelers in Pittsburgh this Sunday.
However, according to a report by ESPN, this will not be the case.

The report says that although the quarterback is healthy enough to play, it is unlikely that he will be active for the team's game against the Steelers this week.
So that closes the case of whether or not Romo will be starting ahead of rookie Dak Prescott this week because he isn't even going to be a backup or active for the game.
This delays the 36-year-old's return for another week, but at least Cowboys fans can be confident that he will be coming back as close to full health as possible.
When that time comes, a big decision will have to be made by the team as to whether to go with Romo or stay with Prescott for the rest of the season.
If the team decides to go with the four-time Pro Bowler over the rookie sensation, then his first game under center since 2015 could be in week 11 when the Cowboys play against Baltimore Ravens.
