Interim coach Jason Garrett said injured quarterback Tony Romo is on schedule in his rehabilitation from a fractured left clavicle. But he said no decision has been made on him returning to the field this season if at all.
Owner Jerry Jones said last week that he would like to get Romo on the field for the final two games if he was cleared by team doctors.
Garrett said team has been evaluating Romo over the last few weeks but are not yet at the point of putting him on a time table of even returning to a full practice, let alone playing in a game. Still he also declined to declare that backup Jon Kitna would be the starter for the remainder of the season.
"We’re still evaluating really the health of Tony as we go forward and how much time is left," Garrett said. "It’s important for all players to be able to practice and practice competitively before they play. I think that applies to everybody but maybe most the quarterbacks for the reasons you just said. You need to have a little rhythm and feel like you’re comfortable playing within the offense regardless of how many snaps you’ve taken in the past. We’ll evaluate that. We have to evaluate his health first and then if he gets an opportunity to start practicing, see how he does there."
