Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been held out of two of the team’s five training camp practices as the staff eases him back into action following back surgery. But Dez Bryant, who has been catching passes from Romo for the past four years now, says the rapport between the two is such that they don’t need many practice reps together.
“That’s exactly how we feel,” Bryant said, via ESPN Dallas. “It’s mutual. We know each other like the back of our hand, so whenever he gets in, I know what’s up. We’re ready to roll.”
That was certainly the case last year, when Bryant caught 93 passes for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns, almost all from his pal Romo. (He caught eight passes for 99 yards and a touchdown from Kyle Orton in Week 17, when Romo sat out with this latest back injury).
Bryant is in full support of the Cowboys’ cautious approach to Romo’s return.
“He looks good. He looks real good,” Bryant said. “It’s Romo. What the coaches are doing, what the organization is doing, that’s exactly what they need to do. We don’t need him right now. We don’t.”
