Tony Romo could return for Cowboys before season ends

The Dallas Cowboys have not ruled out a return this season for quarterback Tony Romo.

In fact, he did some light throwing on the field before Sunday’s victory over the Detroit Lions at Cowboys Stadium, and all reports are he is progressing nicely from the broken left collarbone he suffered Oct. 25 in a home loss to the New York Giants.

The Cowboys are finally showing some life under interim coach Jason Garrett, and the news that they could get their trigger man back at some point next month is intriguing. According to Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, no final determination has been made and Romo is scheduled for some X-rays today in order to see how he’s healing a month after the injury.

When he was hurt, it was believed he would be sidelined for six to eight weeks. That means he could potentially return as early as the Dec. 12 game vs. Philadelphia. Otherwise, he might be relegated to the final two games of the season. They are games that could be crucial to the future of Garrett, who so far is showing well.
