IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys’ health keeps improving. With quarterback Tony Romo returning to practice after sitting Thursday’s workout, only right tackle Doug Free and defensive end Jack Crawford were missing from practice. Free is expected to miss two more games with a small fracture in his right foot. Crawford has been battling a strained calf for the last two weeks. Safety Jakar Hamilton returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday’s session to tend to a personal matter.

Tony Romo shining in second halves

IRVING, Texas -- When Tony Romo's second-half numbers were mentioned to Jason Garrett on Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys coach pointed out that Romo’s four-quarter numbers are pretty good, too. Garrett is correct. Romo leads the league in completion percentage. He is fourth in quarterback rating and yards per attempt. He has the fifth-most touchdowns. Aside from the three interceptions in the first half of the season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Romo has been pretty good for all four quarters.

Is This The Year The Cowboys' Tony Romo Will Finally Remove The Monkey From His Back?

Ever since the Seattle playoff loss under Bill Parcells, Tony Romo has had to deal with the dreaded "can't win the big one" mantra. Is this the year he finally silences his critics? Troy Aikman once said that the quarterback gets too much credit when the team wins and too much blame when the team loses. While the quarterback may be the most important player on a team, the offensive line is the most important group and it may, as a group, have more to do with wins and losses than the quarterback. There are several factors that influence being able to win the big one. THE OFFENSIVE LINE AND...

Tony Romo 'cringes' when he thinks of last Redskins game

IRVING, Texas -- As Tony Romo walked out of FedEx Field last December, his legs were in pain because of a herniated disk, but was happier with directing the Dallas Cowboys to a 24-23 win against the Washington Redskins to keep the season alive. “I didn’t quite know my season was going to be over after I walked off the field,” Romo said Thursday. By the time the Cowboys returned home, Romo needed help off the plane and five days later he had surgery on his back.

Tony Romo growing more accurate too

IRVING, Texas -- In addition to saying he would be the best version of himself over the next few years, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo also said he was throwing the ball as well as he ever had. And he said it after he threw three interceptions in the season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers too. Romo was not talking about arm strength, but his ability to put the ball where he wants. Through seven games, he is completing 69.2 percent of his passes, which is the best in the NFL and would be the best percentage of his career over a full season.

Tight end James Hanna, complementary players value their roles on Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- Tight end James Hanna has played 135 snaps, starting six of seven games this season. He has yet to catch a pass. Actually, Tony Romo has directed only one pass Hanna’s way -- and that was three games ago against New Orleans - but Jason Garrett says the tight end plays a valuable role for the Dallas Cowboys. Hanna spends much of his playing time as a blocking tight end, which should probably be considered impressive considering he’s just 249 pounds.

Tony Romo's camp words prove prescient

IRVING, Texas -- After the first training camp practice, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sat on the back side of a television set and said something that was eyebrow-raising just for the timing of it. "I feel personally like I've just started to come into the player that wanted to be six, seven years ago," Romo said then. "I think -- and I've said it before -- but I think over the course of the next four or five years, you'll see the best version of me that I've had throughout my career.
