Thanksgiving is circled as the best-case date for Tony Romo's return to the Cowboys. Jerry Jones' calendar has a much faster timeline.

Jones, speaking on CBS Sports Radio affiliate 105.3 the Fan in Dallas on Tuesday said he sees no reason why Romo can't return against the Dolphins in Week 11, four days before the Cowboys play the Panthers in their annual Thanksgiving game on Nov. 26.

"I know of no reason why he won't be playing at that time," Jones said.

One good reason: it's only been two months! Romo suffered his collarbone injury on September 20 against in Week 2 against the Eagles.
