This team is Jon Kitna's team. For now. It could be Tony Romo's team again before the season's over. Or it could be Stephen McGee's. Though no one in the organization is yet talking about playing McGee, because that would mean the season is mathematically over, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did raise the possibility that Romo will not return this year.
"We have to see what the circumstances are at that time," Jones said Thursday. "We have to see how well we are playing."
Romo fractured his left clavicle in Monday's 41-35 to the Giants. He will be out at least 6-8 weeks. That would mean a possible return in Week 16, a Christmas night game against the Cardinals. The Cowboys end the season the following week at Philadelphia.
"I wouldn’t be presumptuous enough to know how fast he’s going to heal," Jones said. "The faster he heals, the better I like it. We will be weighing that aspect of where he is in the healing process relative to any risk that you might take with him playing."
