Tony Romo makes official return to Cowboys practice

Tony Romo is back at work with the Dallas Cowboys.

The veteran quarterback was listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday, one day after he did light throwing in individual drills and warmups. He did not participate in 11-on-11 action in his Thursday return, however.

Romo has been out since suffering a broken bone in his back in an Aug. 25 preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has stepped in to lead the Cowboys to a 5-1 record.

Prescott is expected to start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cowboys aren't putting any timeline on a potential return for Romo.

“He’s making really good progress,” Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan told reporters Thursday when asked about Romo. “I think he’s feeling better. He’s able to throw on the run and do some things like that, so it shows he’s getting closer. I don’t know how far that is. There’s no timeline or any of that stuff, but we’re just really happy to see him back out there, see that No. 9 jersey back on the field.”
