Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones liked what he saw out of Tony Romo in Sunday’s 34-31 victory over the Rams in St. Louis--namely, classic Romo, capable of spinning out of trouble, manipulating the pocket and unleashing the deep ball. Heck, he even ran for a first down on a 3rd-and-13.
This is refreshing for obvious reasons. Many worried after the first two games that Romo’s recent back issues could mean the beginning of the end for the two-time Pro Bowler.
“I saw the same things you saw,” Jones said of Romo, per ESPN Dallas. “His quickness, his ability to escape, his ability to whip around and change directions.”
After the success of last week, Romo will remain limited in practice. He sat out of last Wednesday’s team session, opting instead to work out in the weight room, and may very well do the same this Wednesday.
“You have to kind of figure out what’s going to give everyone the best opportunity to play their best,” Romo said. “If you’re tired or sore, that’s just part of football. You want to have the functioning strength that you might have without as many torque situations throughout a week. I think, for me, that was the benefit this week.”
