Maybe Dr. Jones was right. Maybe Tony Romo is 100 percent.
The Cowboys quarterback saw his first action since back surgery Saturday night, and showed a glimpse of his old form in both directions.
Romo had to step up and out of the pocket before hitting Dez Bryant for a 22-yard gain to convert a second-and-19. He threw deep down the sideline a few plays later, and didn’t immediately come up holding his back.
The most danger Romo was in was probably in making a flailing grab for Upshaw.
UPDATE 7:26 p.m. ET: Romo followed up with a 31-yard touchdown pass to a single-covered Dez Bryant. The ball was a bit underthrown (maybe on purpose), but Bryant came back to make a good play on the ball.
That was enough for the night, and he finished 4-of-5 for 80 yards and the touchdown.
