Jerry Jones: Tony Romo’s back is healthy, but no rush to bring him back

Apparently, the compression fracture in Tony Romo‘s back has completely healed, and he could return to the field soon.

That’s what Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed this morning on 105.3 The Fan, as ESPN’s Todd Archer reported. Romo was never placed on injured reserve, so he technically could return as soon as this week.

However, for a number of reasons, that won’t be the case. From Archer:

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that the MRI on quarterback Tony Romo’s back showed the compression fracture has healed and “he has no more concern about this injury that has sidelined him this year.” The focus now is conditioning, strengthening his core for previous back injuries and getting back to football shape. He did not have a timetable for Romo’s return to game action.

Previously, the period between Week 8 and 9 has been cited as a possible return date.

Jones noted the other day that Romo will be the starting quarterback once he’s ready to play, but Dak Prescott‘s brilliance could impact that. The rookie is yet to throw an interception and has appeared to be in complete command of the offense while leading Dallas to a 4-1 record.

His stance may fluctuate:
