The Dallas Cowboys have been reeling since Tony Romo went down injured back in week three of the season, losing all four games without their talismanic quarterback on the field.

And, with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel having failed to plug the gap in Romo's absence, Cowboys fans are desperate to see signs of progress from the veteran.

Picture perfect

Footage emerging this afternoon, then, showing Romo back in pads and completing passes during Dallas' Wednesday practice will fill them with hope. You can check them out below.

Unfortunately for the Cowboys, the veteran QB can't return to competitive action until Week 11 at the earliest due to his short-term IR status. Which is a shame after he is finding Terrence Williams like this...

Nevertheless, after so long out with a broken collarbone, today's images are going down a storm with fans of the famous franchise.

Making progress

According to ESPN, Matt Cassell continued to take all first-team snaps during today's practice session ahead of their key divisional clash against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.

With the former Viking preparing to start only his third game of the year, he certainly needs all the practice he can get.

Yet, with Romo progressing from light throwing last week to greater involvement in the run up to week nine, things look on track for a return to the lineup against the Miami Dolphins on November 22nd.

The fact that Tony Romo still leads the way amongst Cowboys quarterbacks in terms of touchdowns thrown this season (three to Weeden's two) means the franchise simply can't afford for that return to be delayed.

Cowboys fans: Will Dallas still be in the playoff running when Romo returns? Have your say in the comments below...
