Romo will have X-rays but throws for first time since injury

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has done some light throwing for the first time since breaking his left collarbone four weeks ago.

Team owner Jerry Jones says Romo threw on the field before the Cowboys' 35-19 victory Sunday over the Detroit Lions when backup quarterback Jon Kitna threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score.

After Romo was hurt Oct. 25 against the New York Giants, the team said he wouldn't need surgery but would be out six to eight weeks. So he could still miss another two games or more.

Jones indicated that there would be X-rays on Romo, but that any decision on the quarterback's return will be based on "how he's feeling."

Dallas (3-7) has won consecutive games for the first time this season.
