Tony Romo Gets Another Wednesday Off

Romo has now been held out three consecutive Wednesdays



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was held out of practice today for the third Wednesday in a row.

    Romo’s performances over the past two weeks, a stretch in which he’s gone 40 for 52 for five touchdowns and one interception and won two games, seem to suggest the approach is working.

    I’m continuing to get healthier each week that goes by and that’s encouraging,” Romo said, per Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN Dallas. “My ability to move and react and fire and activate everything when you want it--for me personally that has been a huge difference since the first two weeks.”

    Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has been firm in refusing to declare that Romo will sit out each Wednesday for the rest of the season in response to his still-recovering back. But we’d imagine if the results stay the same, they’ll stick with it.
