Tony Romo will have nine months to recover from his slew of injuries he suffered in 2014, which happened to be by far the best season of his career despite missing a game with fractures in his back and playing with that injury along with other bumps and bruises, and a torn ligament in his finger.
Throughout the season, Romo took Wednesdays off of practice religiously, and it seemed to do the trick in terms of giving Romo a regular extra day of rest and recuperation in leading up to the next game.
The one time Romo couldn't stick to that schedule happened to be his worst game of the year in the Cowboys' worst game of the year on Thanksgiving Day in the blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles when the Cowboys played on Sunday night on the road before having to turn around and play Thursday afternoon. Consequently, Romo was awful, throwing for 199 yards, no scores and two interceptions. From that point on, the Cowboys played six more games, including the two playoff games, and Romo threw just one pick in that time — in a Week 17 massacre of the Redskins.
Speaking to 105.3 FM on Thursday morning, Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones said Romo would likely stick to the abbreviated practice schedule in 2015.
“A little time of rest is probably the more likelihood,” Jones said in his broken English. “You’ll probably see him follow a similar regime.”
