    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will reportedly sit out of practice on Tuesday, but coaches made clear that nothing’s wrong with the veteran. Rather, they just wanted to give Romo some rest.

    “We’re trying to give some of more veteran players a little bit of time throughout camp,” head coach Jason Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News.

    Romo has been a full participant in camp since they opened on Oxnard, CA last Sunday, after missing all of the team’s organized team activities and mini-camp as he recovered from minor surgery to remove a non-cancerous cyst from his back. Coaches have been encouraged by Romo’s showing thus far.

    “I think he has made great progress each and every day,” Garrett said. “I think you just see it. Like with a lot of guys, in your first day of camp, there is a little rust that you have. Your feet aren’t always underneath you, whatever position you played. You’re just feeling you way back into football.

    “And I think Tony had some of that. But each and every day throughout camp he has gotten better and better and better. I think his feet are much better. I think he is moving more naturally and instinctively….It’s noticeable to me that he’s improving each and every day.”
