National Football League roundup (Reuters)

(The Sports Xchange) – Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed his third straight day of practice with a back injury on Friday and could be a game-time decision. Coach Jason Garrett said Romo will need to move around better before Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in order to be able to play. The Cowboys have a short walkthrough Saturday. Romo has been receiving treatment on his back all week but has not done any football activities. Brandon Weeden would start at quarterback if Romo can’t go, with undrafted free agent Dustin Vaughan as the backup. …

Judge suggests it’s OK for Redskins to sue Indians (The Associated Press)

A federal judge seems to think Native Americans offended by the Washington Redskins team name are properly being sued by the NFL franchise. Judge Gerald Bruce Lee suggested during a hearing Friday that it would be unprecedented to dismiss the team’s lawsuit against five Native Americans who complained about the name to the U.S. A trademark office board decided in June to cancel some of the Redskins’ trademarks, citing federal regulations against protecting words and images that are disparaging or offensive. The team could have challenged the ruling in appellate court in Washington, but sought help instead in a venue that gives it more options, by going to a trial court to sue the Native Americans who complained in the first place.

Lovie Smith responds to Barron’s ‘passive’ shot with passive shot of his own (Shutdown Corner)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been cleaning house a bit, and prior to the trade deadline, they shipped for former No. 7 overall pick Mark Barron to the St. Louis Rams for two future draft picks. Barron, upon arriving in St. Louis, then ripped the Bucs’ defensive scheme as being “too passive.” [ Join FanDuel.com's $3M Week 9 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 26,405 teams paid ] His former head coach, Lovie Smith, is the architect of the Buccaneers’ defensive scheme, and it doesn’t appear he took too kindly to Barron’s comments. In fact, Smith wasn’t even prompted to comment on what Barron had to say to take his own thinly veiled shot at his former player. Asked about rookie receiver Mike Evans, who made a strong effort in vein to tackle Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on the game’s final play in overtime last week, Smith went for the open-field tackle. “The effort [Evans] gave, he looked like a safety on that play,” Smith said, via the Tampa Bay Times . “One that wasn’t real passive on that play, going down and trying to strip the ball.”  Sour grapes, meet ill will. But then again, it’s in Smith’s nature to be passive aggressive , right? Smith was asked about his Tampa-2 system, which requires defenders to sit back, defend their turf, seldom blitz and aim to make plays after receivers catch the ball. The head coach, who is in the middle of a brutal first season in Tampa, made it known he was not going to attack Barron directly — and that his scheme isn’t the problem. “I’m not going to talk about any players that aren’t here anymore,” Smith said. “Our safety position that we play, one of the requirements isn’t for you to be passive, I will say that.” – - – - – - – Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Redskins-Vikings Preview (The Associated Press)

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden knows Minnesota Vikings counterpart Mike Zimmer all too well after they spent three years together in Cincinnati. Still, Gruden doesn’t expect familiarity to be much help as the Redskins, likely with Robert Griffin III back under center, try to top their win total from last season as they visit Minnesota on Sunday. It was not friendly, usually.” Zimmer has transformed Minnesota’s defense from the second-worst unit in the league last year into a top unit in 2014. The Vikings (3-5) allowed 397.6 yards per game last year compared to 323.8 this season, good for eighth in the NFL.

Redskins: ‘every intent’ of starting RG3 on Sunday (The Associated Press)

One of the NFL’s most dynamic play-makers – and personalities – is set to return Sunday, and the rest of the season could go far in determining his future in the league. Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden made it all but official Thursday when he said he has ”every intent” of starting Robert Griffin III against the Minnesota Vikings. Gruden said Griffin is fully recovered from a dislocated left ankle suffered in Week 2 and that the third-year quarterback took most of the first-team snaps in practice ahead of Colt McCoy, who started Monday night’s upset over the Dallas Cowboys.
