Quarterback Tony Romo, who broke his collarbone in week two, can start practicing this week.
Romo, 35, has already began throwing, according to Charean Williams of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram. Romo, who is on injured reserve/designated to return, can't return to the field until at least Nov. 22.
"We haven't come up with that plan definitely yet," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told the Star-Telegram. "We talked about some different ideas. Obviously, you want to get him out there doing something. He has been throwing the ball a little bit lately. He looks good that way. Again, you try to ease him back into it without compromising our preparation with the other guys to get ready for the game. We'll talk about that more specifically as we get closer to it."
The Cowboys are 0-4 since Romo's departure.
"He's just dying, because he wants us to have success that will allow us to be in good shape as we get on into the season, and he's dying in that respect," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. "On the other hand, physically he's really doing well, and boy, is he engaged, as engaged as I've ever seen him when he's actively playing out there."
Romo will return to limited practice Wednesday, according to Williams.
The four-time Pro Bowl selection completed 54-of-72 passes for 551 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions during a 2-0 start for the Cowboys this season. The Cowboys have had a losing record just once in Romo's tenure. In 2010, Romo broke the same collarbone and the Cowboys finished 6-10.
The Cowboys are tied with the New York Giants for divisional wins this season, with two. Dallas is 2-1 in the NFC East, while the Giants are 2-2, Washington Redskins are 1-1 and the Philadelphia Eagles are 1-2.
