IRVING, Texas - Tony Romos dramatic return from his latest back injury doesnt mean he is cleared to face the next opponent. Nike Shox NZ Cheapest Price .Coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that Dallas was waiting on additional testing for an injury he says is unrelated to the herniated disk Romo sustained in Washington last December, when surgery kept him out of a season-ending loss to Philadelphia with a playoff berth on the line.Romo hurt his back against the Redskins again Monday night, getting what Garrett called a contusion on a third-quarter sack. X-rays were negative, and Romo took a pain injection before returning for the final series of regulation and a failed possession in overtime of a 20-17 loss that snapped Dallas six-game winning streak.After saying on his radio show earlier in the day that he anticipated Romo being ready to face the Cardinals (6-1), Garrett was more evasive when he met with reporters. The coach said Romo seemed good when they spoke by phone, but he hadnt seen the quarterback before Romo went for a CT scan.The Cowboys (6-2) were off Tuesday, and Romo has skipped the Wednesday practice every week during the regular season as part of his post-surgery routine. He had a procedure to remove a cyst from his back in April 2013 and missed all the off-season workouts last year.Weve just got to wait and see how he feels, obviously, Garrett said. Because we played late last night, well be more abbreviated anyway, more of a jog through-type mode.Garrett said it was a medical decision to allow Romo to return, but didnt discount the resolve of a quarterback who led a comeback victory over the Redskins while playing with the herniated disk and did the same thing against the 49ers in 2011 with cracked ribs and a punctured lung.Romo didnt even come close to a rally this time. The last drive of regulation, starting at the Dallas 3, stalled after one first down. The game ended in the extra period on a four-and-out sequence when the Cowboys couldnt convert second-and-2 on three straight pass plays.Hes been in this kind of situation before and played very well, Garrett said. Hes very credible. Hes mentally and physically tough. He seemed capable of doing what we asked him to do on the sidelines. I think we made the right decision. Unfortunately it didnt work for us.The Cowboys scored on both possessions Romo missed, with backup Brandon Weeden getting a boost on his first snap from Murrays 51-yard run to set up a field goal. Weeden then led an 80-yard drive capped by a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten.Garrett dismissed the notion of whether he considered sticking with Weeden once owner Jerry Jones delivered the news to him on the sideline that Romo would be able to return.Tony is our starting quarterback, so theres no discussion there, Garrett said. If Tony was capable of playing and if Tony was functional and able to play, Tony was going to go back in when he was ready to do so.And Romo didnt think the injury had anything to do with a closing sequence that included his fifth sack and an intentional grounding penalty on third-and-1.I think it was their defence on the last series or two that affected it more than anything else, Romo said. They had the right call on a couple times that took away what we wanted.The question now is whether the Redskins took away Romo for another game, or longer.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Nike Shox Shoes NZ .

The Cavs hope his experience will help them get one. Cleveland signed the veteran free agent forward Tuesday, adding a player with an extensive post-season resume to a team targeting an NBA title. Marion agreed to a one-year contract with the Cavs last month, but the sides didnt make it official until Tuesday. A 15-year veteran and four-time All-Star, Marion won a title with the Dallas Mavericks and wants to get a second in Cleveland. Im excited to be a Cavalier, said Marion. I can see the hunger and mentality of everyone in the organization and l look forward to being a part of it. The goal is to win a championship and thats what I want. Last season, the 6-foot-7 Marion averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds in 76 starts for the Mavericks. The Cavs believe he can help them offensively and defensively, but more importantly, in the playoffs. Hes played in 103 career post-season games -- alll starts -- and averaged 14.

Shawn brings great versatility, talent and championship experience to the team, said Cavaliers general manager David Griffin, who previously worked with Marion in Phoenix. He will impact both ends of the floor and his ability to guard multiple positions will be particularly important for us. Marion will likely come off the bench for the Cavs, who were overhauled during the summer with LeBron James re-signing from Miami and the blockbuster trade that brought in All-Star forward Kevin Love. Cleveland has also signed veterans Mike Miller and James Jones, who like Marion, have won titles. Marion has also played for Miami and Toronto. Hes one of four players in league history to record at least 17,000 points, 9,000 rebounds, 1,500 steals and 1,000 blocks. Hakeem Olajuwon, Karl Malone and Kevin Garnett are the others. Marion was drafted with the ninth overall pick by the Suns in 1999.
