    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was helped greatly by the bye week last week, owner and general manager Jerry Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan this week.

    I think it’s really beneficial, and he knows how to use it,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think by the time we kickoff Sunday he will have maximized this break for himself and for us. I was really pleased he had the outing he had in London. It certainly showed that with a couple more weeks of just simple letting it rest, if no other thing, then he’ll be in better shape in that particular area of his back.”

    After being held out of the loss to the Cardinals with a pair of small fractures in his back, Romo returned against the Jaguars in London and went 20 for 28 passing for 246 yards and three touchdowns.

    Some felt that Romo shouldn’t have made the trip, but Jones said this week that the travel was non-issue, adding that the franchise quarterback enjoyed first class accommodations there and back.

    “Oh yeah," Jones said. “He had it going and coming. I think you would’ve had several on that plane ready to give him their seat."
