Starting this week Tony Romo will participate in practice on Wednesday, but the player will not take away any team snaps from Matt Cassel this week during the Dallas Cowboys work out.

“Matt will get the work this week with the ones,” Garrett said. “We’re just talking about getting Tony some work in individual work, throwing the ball, maybe the scout team seven-on-seven. We haven’t firmed any of that up yet, but that’s what the preliminary discussions have been.”

During the past two weeks Romo has been throwing lightly on the side. On Sept. 20 the player suffered a broken collarbone in the team’s win over the Eagles. After this he was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list on Sept. 22.

In the best case scenario the player will continue throwing on the side during practice, while he works through his rehab and conditioning this week. For the first time since his injury, the player is qualified to return to practice. He will be allowed to play again on Nov. 22 when the Cowboys face the Miami Dolphins.

Depending on how Romo feels The Cowboys will upgrade his work, and he might take some team snaps next week.

The Cowboys are considering taking snaps away from Cassel since the player needs to get more comfortable with the team’s offense. The player arrived in a trade from Buffalo on Sept. 23.

“We’ll get into that as we go but we’re trying to win the ballgame this week,” Garrett said. “That’s what our focus is.”

The Cowboys are still down 0-5, with Brandon Weeden starting three games and Cassel playing the last two. Romo started the first two games of the season, completing 54 of 72 passes for 551 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions

This is the second time in six seasons Romo has broken his left collarbone, missing the final 10 games of the 2010 season, but the player’s scans of the past few weeks showed the collarbone is healing.

Romo said he would talk at some point this week, after the team’s loss against the Seahawks.

“You can tell he’s got pep in his step,” tight end Jason Witten said. “He’s excited to get back. I know he’s working hard to do everything he can so when he does come back he’ll be able to play at a high level. He’s been through this before. He’ll work hard to get back. We still got a while to do that but I know we’re getting close.”
