IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo doesn't expect to play again until mid-November.
Romo, who wanted to play last week with a broken pinkie on his throwing hand, said Wednesday the plan now is to return after the bye week.
That means the two-time Pro Bowler would miss at least two more games - Sunday at Tampa Bay and the following week at the New York Giants. The Cowboys then take a week off before returning Nov. 16 at Washington.
Brad Johnson will start against the Buccaneers, who had him as their starter when they won the Super Bowl six seasons ago.
