Tony Romo is expected to return for the Cowboys next game November 16 against the Washington Redskins.

Romo is expected to resume throwing this week as he recovers from a broken pinkie.

The Star-Telegram reports the decision to move Johnson to third string means the Cowboys need a new holder for field goals and extra points because Johnson would be inactive on game days and only available in an emergency.
