QB Tony Romo in starting lineup for Cowboys

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Quarterback Tony Romo is in the starting lineup for the Dallas Cowboys in their NFC East title game with the New York Giants despite being limited at practice this past week because of a bruised right hand.

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora also was active for the first time since late last month when he sprained an ankle against New Orleans. The two-time Pro Bowler was not in the starting lineup, yielding that spot to current Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

There were no starters inactive for the game with the exception of Giants tight end Jake Ballard, who missed his second straight game with a knee injury.
