Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he felt better in Sunday night’s 31-28 victory over the New York Giants, after having the bye week to rest his achy back.
Romo suffered a pair of transverse process fractures in the Week 7 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, and was forced to miss a game as a result. He returned in the team’s London matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars prior to the bye.
On Sunday, Romo looked good when put to the eye test, going for 275 yards and four touchdowns.
"I felt a little bit better," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think hopefully in another week or so I’ll be back to where I’d like to be. That’s just part of playing the game. I’m feeling better, but my movements throughout the week were improved from the Jacksonville week. I could feel that for sure."
The Cowboys will have a rare Monday practice this week in preparation for the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Eagles, and Romo expects to participate.
"I don’t know that we’re going to have much time to go too hard," Romo said. "I think if you’re playing in football games, I’m sure you can make it through walk-throughs."
