Despite reports that the quarterback would be returning to practice sooner than expected, Getlin reports that Romo likely needs to the full eight weeks to recover before he can begin playing again.
Romo threw for 551 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in two games before his injury.
The Cowboys have not won a single game in Romo’s absence, falling to the Seattle Seahawks, 13–12, on Sunday for their fifth straight loss.
Dallas is set to take on the Eagles (3–4) next Sunday.
