IRVING -- Although Tony Romo finished the last game with a sore back, the Cowboys quarterback doesn't anticipate any problem being ready for the next game.
Romo says he will be ready Saturday night when Dallas plays its
Texas Stadium finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

Running back Marion Barber didn't practice today and is again
considered a game-time decision, like he was a week ago when he had

The Cowboys are still in a precarious playoff position. They now
have the NFC's top wild-card seed but have games remaining against
the Ravens and at playoff-hopeful Philadelphia.
