The Dallas Cowboys are expecting quarterback Tony Romo to be in the starting lineup Monday night when they open the home part of their 2011 schedule against the Washington Redskins.

The Cowboys are 1-1 on the young season, while the Redskins have gotten off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2007.

Last week, Romo was hurt in a game at San Francisco. Despite the injury, he came back into the game and helped lead the Cowboys to a game-winning field goal in overtime.

Romo may be missing one of his favorite targets in wide receiver Miles Austin, who was also injured against the 49ers.
