Jerry Jones: You’ll not only see a healthy Tony Romo vs. 49ers, you’ll see an improved player

Even though Tony Romo took some hits during the preseason, how he holds up for an entire game has yet to be determined since his December back surgery. From what he has witnessed during training camp and the preseason, Jerry …

Jerry: Tony Romo will be 'improved player'

IRVING, Texas -- Jerry Jones doesn’t just expect Tony Romo to be the same quarterback he was before undergoing his second back surgery in the span of less than a year.  Jones, the Dallas Cowboys’ owner and general manager, expects Romo to be better than before. Jones has been consistent in insisting this summer that Romo was completely healthy, even as the Cowboys’ $108-million-man missed several practices throughout training camp, with the team attributing those absences to preventative maintenance.

Tony Romo to be ready for full work week

IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to practice three straight days for the first time this summer when the players return to practice on Wednesday. During training camp Romo never worked more than two straight days as he worked his way back from December back surgery. He did not play in the preseason finale on Aug. 28 against the Denver Broncos and sat out one of the two full days of practice. Coach Jason Garrett said Romo had a “good day” in Monday’s practice.

Dallas Cowboys cut-down analysis

Most significant move: It’s not so much who the Dallas Cowboys cut, but who they kept. For the first time since 2011 the Cowboys will keep three quarterbacks. In 2011 they had Tony Romo, Jon Kitna and Stephen McGee. Undrafted rookie Dustin Vaughan will join Romo and Brandon Weeden. For now. Vaughan has made great strides since May and finished the preseason with 212 yards on 22-of-43 passing with a touchdown. With Romo’s return from back surgery at least a minor issue, the Cowboys figured it was worth keeping Vaughan as a developmental player.

Garrett: Romo 'OK' but got day off

IRVING, Texas -- The absence of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo from Monday’s practice is not cause for alarm, according to head coach Jason Garrett. “The idea was to give him the opportunity, in a light practice, to collect himself and take the day off,” Garrett said. The day off wasn’t necessarily due to the pounding that Romo took in Saturday night’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. He was sacked three times and hit another in his half of work during the loss, the first times that Romo has really been hit since undergoing back surgery in December to repair a...

Tony Romo feeling fine, finds cold tub

MIAMI – Tony Romo was among the last players to leave the Dallas Cowboys locker room after Saturday’s 25-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback was able to find a cold tub for some treatment after the game for his surgically-repaired back. Romo spends extra time before and after practices treating his back or doing extra strengthening exercises. After getting sacked three times and hit once more, Romo was glad to spend some time in the cold tub, which was not part of his protocol after games before the most recent back surgery.

Tony Romo should practice more in season

IRVING, Texas -- When the Dallas Cowboys start their regular-season preparation, quarterback Tony Romo is expected to practice each day, according to coach Jason Garrett. Romo has not practiced three straight days in training camp and sat out of Wednesday's practice as he and the team continue to be careful with his return from back surgery. Romo will practice on Thursday and play in Saturday’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. Garrett said the coaches have not yet divvied up the playing time for the Dolphins' game, but the starters typically play the first half in the third...

Observation Deck: Dallas Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas – Tony Romo’s first action since undergoing back surgery on Dec. 27, 2013 has to be deemed a success and not just because he was able to make it through 16 snaps, including penalties, of action unscathed.   The Cowboys lost 37-30 to the Baltimore Ravens, but Romo completed four of his five passes for 80 yards in two series of work in the first quarter, including a 31-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant.   There was a fumble on a handoff exchange with DeMarco Murray that Courtney Upshaw returned 26 yards for a score on the first drive.

Witten: Week has been big for Romo

OXNARD, Calif. -- Every step Tony Romo has taken during Dallas Cowboys training camp has been watched more closely than ever thanks to back surgery last December. In the last week Jason Garrett said Romo has started to look like his old self after being limited in training camp. He has gone through the last four practices, including two against the Oakland Raiders, and if he works today then it will mark the first time he has practiced three straight days in camp.

Camp Confidential: Dallas Cowboys

OXNARD, Calif. -- Every move Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has made in training camp has been watched. That's nothing new. What's new is how those moves are interpreted. Coming off a second back surgery last December, Romo has not taken every training camp snap with the first team as he did coming off the first back surgery in the spring of 2013. It has led to confusion and speculation as to how much the 34-year-old quarterback has left. What has been lost in the interpretations is how Romo has played when he has practiced.

Tony Romo under watchful eye of coaches

OXNARD, Calif. -- If Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo wanted to hide something in his recovery from back surgery, he is on the wrong team. Coach Jason Garrett played the position for 12 years in the NFL with four teams. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson played in the NFL for 19 years for five different teams. Passing game coordinator Scott Linehan played the position at Idaho, taking the school to the Div. 1-AA playoffs three times. He signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 1987 but a shoulder injury ended his professional playing career before it could really begin.

QB coach: On deep throws, Romo tentative

OXNARD, Calif. -- Tony Romo has never possessed the strongest of arm, but he has had one of the quicker releases for NFL quarterbacks. In six padded practices, Romo has had some of his deep balls flutter and float, which quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson attributed to Romo's back surgery. Wilson said all of the intermediate throws required have been spot on. "I think he's been a little tentative with it," Wilson said. "Hopefully he's going to get four days off now because he won't do much (Tuesday), we travel Wednesday, play the game and then they're off on Friday.
