One day after at least being on the field for practice, quarterback Tony Romo wasn't out there with his teammates on Friday, at least not for the early portion of practice, attended by the media.
Whether Romo makes it out on the field or not, it's rather clear that he won't be practicing, still three days before the Monday night game with the Redskins.
Romo's fractured rib/punctured lung injury has his playing status in serious jeopardy, although his backup Jon Kitna said on Thursday that he "fully expects" Romo to play Monday night.
The Cowboys did get other offensive starters back on the field Friday, including wide receiver Dez Bryant, who has been out since the Week One game against the Jets with a deep thigh bruise that forced him to miss all of practice last week, the 49ers game and Thursday's practice.
But don't be surprised if Bryant was just limited in practice but his services will definitely be needed Monday night, especially with Miles Austin not expected to play with a hamstring injury.
Running back Felix Jones (shoulder) and center Phil Costa (sprained knee) were also at practice as well after missing on Thursday.
