    After weeks of being limited in practice, the Dallas Cowboys have increased Tony Romo’s workload this week in anticipation of his preseason debut on Saturday against the Ravens at AT&T Stadium.

    Having watched these workouts, owner and general manager Jerry Jones is happy with what he’s seen out of Romo.

    He’s really looked very comfortable out there,” Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m really pleased with where he is.”

    Romo’s best friend on the team, tight end Jason Witten, is equally optimistic about the franchise quarterback, saying this week has been a promising one for Romo--and, by extension, the entire team.

    “I felt like this was a big week for Tony,” Witten said. “Early in camp they were resting him some and we did not have him every day. I thought he did a really good job going the right places with the ball, good zip on the ball, leading us on the 2-minute drive with the same intensity he always has. I felt like this was a really big week for our team and felt he’s done a really great job setting the tempo for us. These last two days we’ve had success because of the way he’s approached it, so that has been impressive for all of us to see and to get on board with him."
