    It’s that time of year again.

    The Dallas Cowboys will play two games in five days--first, they’ll face the Giants on Sunday night in New York, then next Thursday, they’ll host the Philadelphia Eagles in the annual Thanksgiving Day game--but quarterback Tony Romo hasn’t altered his practice routine in anticipation of the short turnaround.

    I don’t think I’m going to do anything,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s really about this week and getting ready for the Giants. Once that game is over, I’ll set up a different plan and talk to trainers and coaches and we’ll go from there. But this week it’s not about thinking about next week at all. You’ve got to get yourself ready to play in this one game and against the Giants. This is a very important game, a big game for us.”

    Romo suffered two transverse process fractures in the loss to the Redskins three weeks ago, but came back from that injury in the win over the Jaguars in London. As of now, he’s not looking beyond the Giants game, and he won’t speculate on what his preparation will be like.

    “I think we’ll address that next week,” Romo said. “Right now, I have a full week plus the bye from last week to be able to get myself ready and that was big. I think after the game against New York, we’ll reassess everything, but that’s not on my mind right now.”
