Jerry Jones says no timetable to determine return of Tony Romo
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he won't put a date on the return of Tony Romo, and looks more ready to ride the Dak Prescott wave for now.
And then some, actually.
The team is ablaze heading into their bye week and while it was initially reported Romo would likely see his return in either Week 8 or Week 9, owner Jerry Jones has officially softened that stance. Jones pretty much left the door wide open to continue riding the hot-handed Prescott until further notice.
Unlike in 2015 when Romo was rushed back prematurely only to suffer another injury, he'll now have a chance to reach 110% before being asked to step back on the field. And that could be the difference between the Cowboys exiting the playoffs early this year, or hoisting their sixth Lombardi trophy.
And that's the ultimate goal of Jones, not loyalty.

It looks like Jones is ready to get more hardware by any means necessary.
