IRVING (September 23, 2011) -- Tony Romo wasn't on the field at the start of Cowboys' practice Friday, giving Jon Kitna another day of work
with the starters.

Romo is dealing with a cracked rib and a lung that's recovering
from a puncture. He hasn't practiced since leading Dallas to a
comeback win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Coach Jason Garrett hasn't said whether Romo must practice
before playing the home opener Monday night against Washington
(2-0).

The Cowboys (1-1) have another practice Saturday and a
walkthrough Sunday.

Receiver Dez Bryant returned Friday for the first time since
injuring a thigh in the opener. Running back Felix Jones (shoulder)
and center Phil Costa (knee) also returned after missing practice
Thursday.

Receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) remains out.
