Tony Romo downplayed any concern over his sore right shoulder recently, saying more or less that it was no big deal, something to be expected every once in a while in training camp. And apparently, his blase reaction to the soreness was well founded.

ESPNDallas.com has reported that Romo’s arm is feeling better after a few days of restful practice. On Saturday, Dallas worked mostly on red zone and short yardage situations, meaning he wasn’t forced to make many throws; on Sunday, Dallas had a walkthrough.

The medical staff was reportedly pleased with Romo’s condition after Monday’s practice, and head coach Wade Phillips expects Romo to play in Sunday’s preseason opener against the Bengals.

"You have to worry about the quarterbacks throwing every day [because] they don’t throw every day in the offseason," Phillips said, per ESPNDallas. "I think he’ll feel good [Tuesday] and a couple of days we haven’t been [practicing] as much. [It's] just like their legs, I think their legs will be better [Tuesday].”

However, despite the mild scare, it won’t be Camp Cupcake for Romo from here out.

“Now we’ll wear them down again,” Phillips said, “because we are still in training camp and we have two two-a-days this week so we won't be as fresh as a regular season game but fresh enough to do well in the [preseason] game individually anyway."
