(LONDON) -- Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was back on the field practicing with his team on Thursday.
There's no word on if Romo will play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday after suffering two transverse process fractures in his back on Oct. 27.
"I'm a football player, this is what I do for my life's work," Romo said on Thursday. "It's important to me. I care about playing and competing and helping this football team win."
"You're only afforded so many opportunities at that, so you want to take advantage of that when you have that opportunity," Romo continued. "If you love the game, you'll always try and get on the field."
Owner Jerry Jones believes he'll be able to get on the field. "I'm anticipating him playing, have no reason to think that he won't, and this will be a nice little practice session for him out there today," he said. "But my expectations are for him to play."
The Cowboys are coming off a 28-17 loss to the Cardinals with backup quarterback Brandon Weeden at the helm.
