You can file as married filing jointly, just put his ITIN number in where it asks for his SSN.

If you file jointly, you have to list any income that he has anywhere in the world.

And do I claim him as a dependent because he has not worked but a couple weeks and then he got hurt on the job so he has been a stay at home dad

No. You can not ever claim a spouse as a dependent. Filing as Married Filing Jointly takes care of that.

You can file as married filing jointly whether one of you has little or no income, that does not matter at all, and there is nothing special about it. Just go through the Turbotax interview and answer the questions.
