The Dallas Cowboys are in training camp during July and the big focus is on the health of quarterback Tony Romo, who is coming off back surgery for the second offseason in a row. Early in camp, Romo is looking good according to several people in the organization.
“I thought Tony threw it well,’’ owner Jerry Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News.
“I thought he looked good,’’ quarterback coach Wade Wilson said. “He looked fresh. It wasn’t bothering him at all. He had good velocity on his throws and good accuracy on his throws.’’
The Cowboys are looking to limit Romo in practice but are relying on him to tell him how they feel. They don’t want Romo over-taxing himself or hurting his back before the start of the season and putting himself at risk for the upcoming season.
Romo planned to practice again on Sunday before the team rested on Monday. Then Romo and the training staff will get together to assess his health before deciding whether he will practice on Tuesday or not.
“Tony is making that call if there is any change from the plan,’’ Jones said. “If he’s feeling a little heavy in a sense of muscles, he’ll give them a break.
“I’m glad he’s mature enough and experienced enough to understand his body and make those kind of decisions.’’
