It's a start
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Injured Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has
thrown passes to receivers at practice Monday - albeit merely soft
tosses during warm-ups.
Still, his appearance is an indication he could be closer to
Romo broke his left collarbone on Oct. 25. He is expected to
miss at least two more games to let the injury heal.
The Cowboys have made a return possible by not putting Romo on
injured reserve. Interim coach Jason Garrett says the plan is to
"get him as healthy as we can as quickly as we can."
Garrett adds that a decision on if or when he returns "will be
based on the medical evidence that we have."
Romo has lobbed balls on the field before each of the last two
games, but this was the first time he was seen throwing to
teammates during the portion of practice open to media.
