Jones: 'No reason' Tony Romo not back Nov. 22

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Tony Romo is expected to do some work during practice this week. Wednesday is the first day the Cowboys quarterback, who has been sidelined since fracturing his collarbone Sept. 20, is eligible to begin practicing.

He's eligible to return to the playing field Nov. 22 against the Miami Dolphins.

Jerry Jones said Tuesday morning that there's no reason to think Romo won't be ready to play by that date.

"No. There's no reason," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's Shan and RJ show [KRLD-FM]. "He's really doing well. You'd like to say ahead of schedule but who knows about that? But still, I know of no reason he won't be playing at that time.

"He's very involved. He's, of course, going to be mentally ready. He stays ready there. But he'll hopefully have the opportunity to physically get ready over these next two or three weeks. Hopefully we can get him some work in at practice and obviously will the week of the game. Hopefully we can get him some work in during these times right now."

Fantasy Impact: 

Nov. 22 is Week 11 and the Miami trip is quickly followed by the Thanksgiving Day game against Carolina only four days later. But Jones said there's no concern about Romo playing on short rest, the story said. Romo could be worth an add to your roster if you can afford to stash him and you've been struggling at QB. Owners could potentially get a good read on him in time for upcoming fantasy playoff games.
