The Dallas Cowboys returned from their bye week today and Tony Romo wasn’t practicing Monday at the team headquarters in Frisco.
Romo has missed the entire season with a back injury and there was speculation he would be back against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, with him missing practice on Monday it looks more likely that Dak Prescott will still start this week.
While Romo was out, Dez Bryant is looking closer to a return after he was a full participant at practice.
Tony Romo and Tyron Smith were not at practice. Dez Bryant was doing everything during portion open to media. Looked good catching passes

Bryant has tested his injured knee before each of the past two games, but hasn’t been strong enough to play. Even without Romo and Bryant, the Cowboys are 5-1 and have won five straight games.
