Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice this week and is expected to make a full return in the coming future. According to owner Jerry Jones, it will be in the very near future.

“I sure do see him active in the future, and in the near future,” Jones said on Friday about the veteran quarterback.

Jones did not elaborate on exactly when Romo would be activated, but it apparently will not be this upcoming Sunday when the Cowboys head to Cleveland to take on the winless Browns. Head coach Jason Garrett dismissed the notion.

“I don’t anticipate Tony Romo being active this week,” Garrett said when asked if the veteran would dress this week.

Ultimately it may not make a difference to Dallas when Romo is activated if rookie sensation Dak Prescott continues to play at such a high level. He’s led the Cowboys on their current six-game winning streak and has drawn excellent reviews from his teammates.

In other news for the Cowboys, Jones also said that starting cornerback Morris Claiborne, who left the game against the Eagles late in the fourth quarter with a groin injury, is doing much better and is only dealing with a “strained groin”.

“He’s doing much better, initially here these first few days, than we could have expected,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan’s G-Bag Nation show [KRLD-FM]. “We’re going to be positive about that. Obviously he’s not going to play against Cleveland. I think that’s been announced. The point is that Mo is having his best year and he’ll be back out there, in my view.”
