Tony Romo Camp

Thought it might be a good idea to start a Tony Romo thread since there will be a lot of info about him.

Tony Romo took part in his first contact practice Saturday afternoon since he underwent back surgery seven months ago.

The verdict:

“I thought Tony threw it well,’’ owner Jerry Jones said.

Romo didn’t a lot of deep balls but generally displayed a nice touch on the ones he did. He completed two-of-four passes in team drills and was seven-of-eight in his work against the secondary with no rush. He was never really in a position where he had to torque or twist his back to get off a throw.

“I thought he looked good,’’ quarterback coach Wade Wilson said. “He looked fresh. It wasn’t bothering him at all. He had good velocity on his throws and good accuracy on his throws.’’

Romo told Wilson he plans to practice again Sunday. The players are off Monday. The training staff and Romo will assess how he feels before determining whether or not he practices on Tuesday.

“Tony is making that call if there is any change from the plan,’’ Jones said. “If he’s feeling a little heavy in a sense of muscles, he’ll give them a break.

“I’m glad he’s mature enough and experienced enough to understand his body and make those kind of decisions.’’

Head coach Jason Garrett said they will continue to monitor Romo and that it’s more important that he gets quality throws rather than quantity. How does Garrett define quality throws?

Well, there are 11 wide receivers in this camp.  Dezmon Briscoe, Jamar Newsome and L’Damian Washington should not expect to catch a lot of balls from Romo in individual drills.

“When you’re in great health and you’re a young guy you can just keep going on stuff like that,’’ Garrett said. “But we’ve got to make sure that he’s throwing to Dez (Bryant) and Terrance (Williams) and really getting good, quality work and the other guys are getting the chance to throw to the other guys in the drills.’’

Is Best Yet To Come For Romo?

OXNARD, Calif. -- With the long-term view on the regular season, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he will play some in the preseason, but perhaps not the Aug. 7 opener against the San Diego Chargers.

Tony Romo said he will play in the preseason, but he is not sure he will play in the opener on Aug. 7.

"You're constantly evaluating it and you're constantly, I don't want to say adjusting because you stick to the plan, but it's a progression," Romo said. "It's leading up to San Francisco (on Sept. 7 for the season opener). I am going to play in the preseason, obviously. I think it's important. The first game, we'll talk about it as we move into the weekend."

After having surgery to remove a cyst from his back last year, Romo did not play in the 2013 preseason opener in the Hall of Fame Game against the Miami Dolphins. He saw action in the second preseason game, completing six of eight passes for 88 yards in two drives.

Romo returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday's afternoon session as he continues to monitor his training camp work because of back surgery last December. Romo plans on practicing again Thursday with the Cowboys scheduled for an off day on Friday.

He said the start to training camp has gone the way he expected.

"It's just a little unknown so you'd rather play it safe than be silly and just go out and do everything over and over again and all of a sudden have to sit out for a week or so," Romo said. "I think more than anything we're playing the long game and I think that's smart."

Romo goes through a time-consuming daily process to help maintain strength in and around his back. He said he sits in a cold tub three times a day, "which isn't fun." He gets laser treatments. He strengthens his glutes, hamstring and abdominal muscles every day.

"But that doesn't mean you can't do the things that it takes to be successful on the field or whatever you want to do," Romo said. "There's been plenty of people who've done it. You just got to go do it. It just takes work."

ROMO FAMILY: Tony Romo worked again for the second consecutive day - and for the second time in the day. He threw the ball sharply in the morning, but in the full work he had a few too many incompletions for his own taste and overthrew a wide open Terrance Williams deep downfield in 7-on-7's.

However, there were some positives.

Again, Romo showed good depth and velocity on his deep throws and had a nice zip. He also showed some of his mobility, which was encouraging. George Selvie got into the backfield and forced Romo to spin out to his left, a move he is known for. He searched for a target, but no one was open so he ran for a couple of yards before being the play ended.

Coach Jason Garrett's overall eval? "I think he's sharp. ... I think he's throwing the ball well with command and decisiveness," he said.

We didn't see anything unnerving or worrisome by the way he was moving. ... and after the workout he played on the field with his young son Hawkins. ... And agreed with us when we noted that Hawkins was copying Cole Beasley's hairstyle.

"Exactly!" Tony laughed.

Still seems to be some mystery here as to how Tony's back is doing. I just get the feeling we aren't getting the whole truth. JMO


ROMO ON AND OFF: During the earlier portion of practice, Recently Tony Romo seemed a little off (but so did the rest of the team). Had a few overthrown balls that should've been completions. However, once he got into the team red-zone and two-minute drills, he looked like his usual self. Showed good accuracy on both short and long passes and made some really smart, quick decisions.

Romo won't work on Tuesday and the team travels on Wednesday. He won't play in the Thursday game at San Diego and the team is off again Friday. So, an alarmist headline might scream, "Romo Won't Practice All Week.'' But in context, the plan remains the same.

"I think he's doing a good job,'' COO Stephen Jones said. "He's coming along. He feels good and we feel good about him."

Scout’s Eye: Studying Romo’s Stellar Saturday

                     Bryan Broaddus                     Football Analyst/Scout

OXNARD, Calif. -- In watching Tony Romo live, then later on tape, it’s clear that Saturday’s practice was by far his best day throwing the ball during training camp.

His release and delivery appeared smooth and without hesitation. He showed touch when trying to lay the ball in between defenders and accuracy when working the ball downfield, as well as in his short and intermediate game.


Maybe this last paragraph can alleviate some of the fears a few had at the start of TC.

This Cowboys medical staff has always had a plan in regard of how to work Tony Romo back into football shape after his surgery. With that plan and timetable in mind, they have brought Romo along to the point where we are starting to see favorable ways in which he is practicing and Saturday’s practice was a great example of that.
