IRVING, Texas - Tony Romo missed practice yesterday, but Dallas coach Wade Phillips said he expected the Cowboys quarterback to return today.

Romo was sent home with medicine to deal with flu symptoms.

Coming off a Saturday night game, the Cowboys put in their game plan a day early, "so he missed a day where we were repeating some things," Phillips said.

Receiver Terrell Owens said he expects Romo to play Sunday when the Cowboys visit the Eagles. Dallas must win to get an NFC wild-card berth in the playoffs.

"I mean, he's not on his dying bed, is he?" Owens said.
