IRVING, Texas -- It's been eight weeks since quarterback Tony Romo suffered a fractured left collarbone in a loss to the New York Giants.

It's a 6-8 week injury, but Romo isn't close to returning to the field this year.

There was a thought Romo could return for the Christmas night game at Arizona.

"Yeah, we'll see how he does tomorrow and see how he feels," interim coach Jason Garrett said Monday.

But it doesn't appear Romo will see the field this year.

After the Cowboys' victory against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Jerry Jones said Romo still has some issues with the collarbone.

"If he were healthy, he would practice," Jones said. "We are a little behind where I thought we would be on how healthy he is."

There are times Romo will throw lightly in practice, but he's still having some discomfort throwing the ball with force and he still has issues sleeping on the left shoulder.

The Cowboys have roughly six practices remaining in their season, not including the walkthrough sessions conducted at half-speed.

It's interesting to note that neither Garrett nor anybody else in the organization will say Romo is out for the season. When asked why won't they just do that, Garrett said, "Just important to evaluate it on a day-to-day basis."
