Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss workouts

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:47:30 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will sit out practice Friday, July 25 as part of a preplanned day off, according to Jason Garrett. Romo is scheduled to take all the first-team reps Saturday, July 26. "We talked about this beforehand with all of our players. Whenever they are coming back, to be mindful of the two-a-days and what they are doing. You are out here for an hour. It doesn't seem like much. It's a walk through situation. But you warm up for that, cool down and get started again in the afternoon," Garrett said. "We just wanted to make sure we are careful on the two-a-days and then the consecutive two-a-days. I think the schedule sets up pretty well for him the next few days. It gives him a chance to get himself settled in. We will keep an eye on him every day."

Fantasy Tip: It is not surprising that the Cowboys would be cautious in training camp With Romo coming off back surgery, especially early in camp. This will be something to keep an eye on, but it does not appear to be something to be concerned about for now.
