Despite back injury, Romo active for Cowboys against Jaguars in London

Tony Romo is active for the Cowboys against the Jaguars in London despite a back injury that ruled him out of last week's loss to Arizona.

The Dallas quarterback has fractures in two small bones in his back after being injured in a loss to the Washington Redskins two weeks ago but practiced on Thursday and Friday ahead of the game at Wembley Stadium.

Rookie QB Blake Bortles is also active for the Jaguars (1-8) despite a left wrist problem.

Defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford is inactive for Dallas with a knee injury.

Romo's return is a boost for the Cowboys (6-3) after Brandon Weeden struggled against the Cardinals.
