    LONDON - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sat out the teams first practice in London on Wednesday because of his injured back.Romo, who missed last Sundays 28-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals with his third back injury in the last 18 months, made the trip to England but stayed at the hotel while the rest of his teammates practiced at Allianz Park.Its just based on the feedback, and what hes told us how he feels, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. Is it more worthwhile to stay there and get treatment, or come over here and watch practice and stand up for a couple of hours? It makes sense to stay there and get some treatment.The Cowboys (6-3) face the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8) on Sunday at Wembley Stadium, the last of three regular-season NFL games in London this year.Instead of Romo, backup Brandon Weeden took the snaps during practice on Wednesday. Weeden, who was dumped by Cleveland two seasons after getting drafted in the first round in 2012, threw two interceptions against Arizona and couldnt get the Dallas offence into the end zone until the game was out of reach. He now has 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions in his career.Garrett, however, remained optimistic that Romo would be ready for Sunday.Obviously, all these things are medical decisions. Really important for our medical team to weigh in on what our players have, Garrett said. Getting feedback from the player, as to how they feel, how they handle the workload, is really, really important. And then you come up with what you need to do during the week to get them prepared to play their best on Sunday.Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said Romo seemed to be on the mend after the long trip to London.I know he felt good from the plane, Witten said. Hes tough, he really is, so I know hes going to do everything he can (to play Sunday).Romo has fractures in two small bones in his back. The injury is unrelated to a herniated disk sustained last year and to off-season surgery to remove a cyst earlier in 2013.Despite the focus on Romo and how hes feeling, Garrett said the attention was a not a distraction for Weeden, who was 18 of 33 for 183 yards with one touchdown as the Cowboys dropped their second straight game last weekend following a six-game winning streak.Theres a lot of media attention on the NFL, on the Cowboys, and certainly if youre the quarterback of the Cowboys, theres a lot of media attention that comes with that, Garrett said. If youre that guy, or someone around that guy, its just part of the deal. It comes with the dinner, as they say, and you get yourself ready to go.Even if Romo says he is ready to go and given clearance by the medical team, Garrett and his assistants will make the ultimate decision based on his performances in practice.We as coaches, the football people, were most interested in function, how is the player functioning, Garrett said. He might say this, the doctor may say this, but what we see is this.We have to make the best decision during the week to get him ready to play on Sunday.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Toby Alderweireld Belgium Jersey. Compared to what hes gone through in recent weeks, that seemed like a breeze. Speaking to The Associated Press on Friday at an NBA Cares event, Silver said hes thrilled that the leagues attention can be on the championship series between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs -- and not, as it was for so much of the post-season, on the off-the-court matters involving the banishment of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and now the looming sale of that franchise.

MIAMI -- UFC fighter Thiago Silva is in jail after being accused of threatening his wife with a gun. Broward County jail records show that Silva, 31, was being held without bond following his arrest Thursday on charges that included attempted murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and obstruction without violence. But his attorney, Scott Saul, told The Associated Press that the charges were downgraded during a Friday court appearance to aggravated assault with a firearm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Saul said he entered a not guilty plea on Silvas behalf. Authorities said Silva took a gun to a mixed martial arts academy in Oakland Park and threatened to shoot his estranged wife, Thaysa, and her now-boyfriend, who called police and Silva drove away. Authorities tracked him down to his home where he was holed up for hours until he surrendered. Authorities used a stun gun on him before he was taken into custody. Ultimate Fighting Championship said on its website that it has terminated the Silvas contract, effective immediately. A message left with UFC was not immediately returned Saturday. Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley noted during the court appearance that there was no probable cause to support the attempted murder charges but ordered Silva held without bond after expressing concern about the nature of the allegations and said Silva, a Brazilian mixed martial artist, posed a flight risk. "Hes upset because hes been humiliated and hes in jail," Saul said of Silva. "Hes been very unfairly treated as some type of aggressive animal just because hes a professional athlete. There are no marks on this womans body. Hes not accused of ever hitting her. When Im dealing with him, Im dealing with the perfect gentleman." But a probable cause affidavit shows Silva had threatened his estranged wife on several occasions. Thaysa Silva told deputies on Jan. 30 that she and her husband had been arguing over an eextra marital affair when Thiago pointed a gun at her and said he was going to kill her, the report stated.dddddddddddd. He then placed the gun in her mouth. The same day, Thaysa Silva obtained a temporary injunction of protection against him. On Wednesday, police say he sent her a text message in Portuguese that said "...you are going to die. I am going to hire someone to kill you." The next day Thiago Silva "had been drinking and extremely intoxicated" when he drove to the gym and threatened to kill his wife and her now-boyfriend who owns the gym, the report said. "I will go in the gym and start shooting everyone," Silva said. There were 25 people in the gym at the time, the report noted. The boyfriend went outside and Thiago threatened to kill him and his wife, the report said. The boyfriend eventually called police and Silva drove off. He was later arrested at his home and appeared to be intoxicated and "uttered that he did not know what was going on," the report said. The report said Silva and his wife had been married for 13 years, but Saul said the two were separated. Silva (16-3 with two no contests) has had a checkered history in mixed martial arts. In November 2012, he tested positive for marijuana following a win over Stanislav Nedkov in Macau. The fight was declared a no contest and Silva was banned for six months. He agreed to participate in an approved drug-rehabilitation program. The former light-heavyweight contender admitted to doping and tampering with his urine at a UFC 125 drug test. He said he did it because he injured his back in advance of the January 2011 fight against Brandon (The Truth) Vera. Silva won the fight, which was turned into a no contest after the failed drug test The Nevada State Athletic Commission had alleged he submitted a specimen that was "inconsistent with human urine" before the bout. Silva was banned for a year and fined US$33,750. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
