In addition, they do not require the Physics GRE even though it is strongly recommended but you would have a pretty good excuse for not taking it-->It's not offered at this time. You better convince them that you are dead set on getting a PhD though. So you could potentially take the General GRE this week and then submit app by Feb 1 and then order the scores for them as soon as they come out. And of course self report the once you see when you finish the computer test. I mean the writing does not matter all that much anyway... You wanna be sure you score well on the quantitative part though. Also whether this is at all a possibility depends on whether you can get all recommendations in on time. So here is the Stony Brook FAQ you can see for yourself:

Also there is another thread that lists schools that do not require the Physics GRE
look into whether their HEP involvement interests you and what are the deadlines.
Oh, you also got to convince them that you do not need TOEFL...
Finally, don't fool yourself, this will be hard to pull off, at best.
And that's all I got on the matter. Good luck!
