Garrett: “No Issues” For Romo After First Game in Two Months

Tony Romo threw two touchdowns and two picks in his return to action Sunday

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo participated in a walkthrough on Monday, a day removed from his first game action in two months, and head coach Jason Garrett was encouraged by how the All-Pro responded.

It seemed like he handled the game really well,” Garrett said, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “I don’t see any issues after the game. I don’t see any issues today.”

Romo went 18-of-28 in his return against the Dolphins, for 227 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, but he got better as the game wore on--which wasn’t really surprising, given that he was coming off a two-month layoff.

“Just seeing the game, having the game slow down, trusting your reactions, trusting your instincts,” Garrett said. “The more you play, the more natural it is for you. When you haven’t played in a little bit, sometimes you have to get yourself acclimated back into the game. And sometimes the looks are really clean, you see it, boom, the ball comes out of your hand. And other times, you have to kind of work your way through things.

“I thought he did a good job in a couple of instances, when he didn’t see it great, or might have been late to a throw, he kind of burned the ball in a real positive way for us and kind of lived for another day. I thought as the game wore on, he looked more and more like himself.”
