Jerry Jones says no timetable to determine return of Tony Romo

Now that the Dallas Cowboys are 5-1 with rookie Dak Prescott at the helm, it gives the team time to allow quarterback Tony Romo to heal fully.

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.

Head coach Jason Garrett said in his Monday press conference via DallasCowboys.com that Romo would not practice this week, as the team takes their time with their franchise QB.

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.
