The Dallas Cowboys are sticking to their approach where Tony Romo’s practice schedule is concerned.
Romo hasn’t practiced on a Wednesday since Week 1, and the team believes the extra day of rest has helped Romo (and his back) in preparing for games. He didn’t do much practicing during the bye week last week, also part of the team’s plan to keep their franchise quarterback fresh.
"It's just really been about the rhythm of the week for him and getting the work in this morning with the walkthrough and getting his rehab in this afternoon and not throwing three days in a row," said head coach Garrett, per ESPN Dallas. "It's worked out well for him, so he comes back tomorrow and then gets two good days in and then Saturday is off and you play Sunday.
“It's been a good thing for him. We've managed players through the years a lot of different ways in how you try to get them to Sunday and give them the best chance to be successful. This has been pretty good for us so far so we want to continue it this week."
