The only game without goals on Tuesday

LONDON - Tony Romo practiced Thursday for the first time since arriving in London, and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback says his injured back is getting better. [url=http://www.soccerspainauthority.com/juanfran-spain-jersey/]Juanfran Jersey[/url] .Romo missed last Sundays loss to the Arizona Cardinals because of his third back injury in 18 months. He skipped Wednesdays practice following the teams arrival Tuesday.Well keep taking it day by day and just see what happens, Romo said. Its improving each day and I think we did some things today that were positive. Just keep going in that direction, I think well have a good chance (of playing Sunday).The Cowboys (6-3) play the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8) at Wembley Stadium in the last of three regular-season games in London this year. They have lost their last two games, however, with backup Brandon Weeden playing last weekend.Romo has fractures in two small bones in his back. The injury is unrelated to a herniated disk last year or to off-season surgery to remove a cyst earlier in 2013.The quarterback said Thursday he was still a little sore, but called it normal stuff and said his back loosened up during practice.If youre always waiting to feel great to play in every game you play in, youre only going to play a couple of games a year, he said. The best players are the guys who are able to play at the same level with stuff going on.Even though Romo practiced, Dallas coach Jason Garrett is still not sure who will start.We would never put a player in harms way. Obviously its a very physical sport that we play, Garrett said. He (Romo) has to be functional. He has to be able to protect himself.Against the Cardinals, Weeden threw two interceptions and had one late touchdown. So for the Cowboys, who have a bye next week, getting Romo on the field is a priority if they want to end the two-game losing streak.Even if he is in a little pain.No one cares once you actually step on the field on Sunday whether youre banged up or not, Romo said. Its just about what you do when youre out there.Each day you just get incrementally better, you improve. Im feeling better. I think its getting to a point where you can manage it.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones watched practice and said Romo had a comfortable flight to London.Im anticipating him playing, he said. Have no reason to think that he wont.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL [url=http://www.soccerspainauthority.com/diego-costa-spain-jersey/]Diego Costa Jersey[/url] . So what happens? Stevenson lands a huge left to Dawsons temple only 76 seconds into the opening round and walks away with the championship belt. "I said Id knock him out," said Stevenson (21-1).

Gorges is believed to have suffered the injury while blocking a shot with a hand during Montreals win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. The Canadiens added to their defensive depth this week by acquiring veteran Mike Weaver from the Florida Panthers.LONDON -- Arsenals title push was slowed by a draw at Southampton, Liverpool humbled neighbour Everton and Robin van Persie made a goal-scoring return from injury for Manchester United on a lively night in the Premier League on Tuesday. Arsenal clung on to a 2-2 draw at Southampton with 10 men after Mathieu Flamini was sent off in the 80th minute for a two-footed tackle. After trailing through Jose Fontes goal, Arsenal led briefly at the start of the second half when Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla scored but Adam Lallana quickly levelled for Southampton. While Arsenal extended its lead to two points, Manchester City can now go top with a victory at Tottenham on Wednesday. If City slips up, Chelsea can take the lead by beating West Ham. Liverpools focus is Champions League qualification, and a 4-0 derby demolition of Everton -- with Daniel Sturridge scoring twice -- took them three points ahead of Tottenham in fourth place. United is staying in touch with the top four, but remains six points adrift despite Van Persie taking just six minutes to score after almost two months out in a 2-0 victory over bottom-place Cardiff. Jonjo Shelvey and Chico Flores scored as Swansea beat Fulham 2-0 for its first win in nine league games, while Jason Puncheon eased Crystal Palaces relegation fears by clinching a 1-0 victory over Hull. The only game without goals on Tuesday was at Carrow Road, but the drama was provided by the 80th-minute scuffle that led to Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson and Newcastle striker Loic Remy being sent off. On the south coast, Arsenal experienced an unusually dismal first half in a bright season for Arsene Wengers sidee. [url=http://www.soccerspainauthority.com/juan-mata-spain-jersey/]Juan Mata Jersey[/url]. Fonte rose over Nacho Monreal to meet Luke Shaws cross to head past Wojciech Szczesny in the 21st. Arsenal avoided conceding again, and turned the game around after the break, with Giroud deflecting Bacary Sagnas cross into the net in the 48th and Cazorla set up by Mesut Ozil for a goal four minutes later. But Southampton became just the second side to score more than one against the Gunners in their last 22 league games when Lallana scored from Jay Rodriguezs cutback in the 54th. And Arsenal settled for the point after Flamini saw red for a two-footed lunge on Morgan Schneiderlin. At Anfield, Liverpool completely overwhelmed Everton after captain Steven Gerrard headed the hosts in front after 21 minutes. Sturridge then sprung the offside trap twice in two minutes to score a brace, and Luis Suarez scored his 23rd league goal of the season at the start of the second half. Sturridge missed out on a hat trick when he sent a penalty kick over the crossbar after Raheem Sterling was brought down by goalkeeper Tim Howard. "Its a massive victory over rivals close to us," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "If you look at Everton theyve only conceded 11 goals away from home before tonight and for us to get four and to maybe have had a few more is very pleasing." At Old Trafford, it was the perfect debut for record signing Juan Mata, and the perfect return for Van Persie. "We have missed his goals," United manager David Moyes said. After seven weeks out with a thigh injury, Van Persie headed United in front after six minutes, and Ashley Young struck the second after the break.
