Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out of Wednesday’s session for the second consecutive week, a measure taken by the team to keep Romo fresh as he continues to rebuild strength following back surgery in December.
There’s a chance this could become a regular thing, but nothing is set in stone to this point.
“I didn’t have quite the strength I wanted to explode off in the first couple weeks, and last week I was able to during the week through some changes we made,” Romo told the team’s website. “I think that it’s going to only continue to get better. Last week I was pretty excited about the way that I was moving and feeling, so I think I’ll continue to feel better each week.”
Head coach Jason Garrett explained that Wednesday is an ideal day for Romo to rest.
“Typically, Wednesday is a run and play-action type day for our whole football team,” Garrett said. “He can get a lot of that work done in the walk-through like he did this morning, and then some of the more situational stuff will happen as the week goes on.”
