Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was held out of practice on Wednesday for the second week in a row. Earlier in the week, head coach Jason Garrett credited the extra day off with keeping Romo fresh going into Sunday’s match-up with the St. Louis Rams.
“It certainly helped him last week,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “He looked better as the week wore on, both Thursday and Friday in practice. And I think he looked his best in the game. So we’ll evaluate how he feels and what the best thing is to do. We’re not going to make any grand proclamations about what we’re going to do for all the weeks in the rest of the season. We’re just going to take it day by day, week by week.”
The Cowboys, of course, have been treading with caution where Romo is concerned all year. He underwent surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back in December which, at the time, was his second back surgery in an eight-month span.
If today plays out like last Wednesday, Romo will spend the day in the weight room doing core strength exercises.
