Tony Romo won’t be back at quarterback for the Cowboys on Sunday in Cleveland, but he was back on the practice field today, getting his first snaps in team work since suffering a back injury in the preseason.
For now, Romo is just running the scout team while Dak Prescott continues to get the first-team work, but Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says Romo is looking great, in good shape and showing off a strong throwing arm.
“I think he’s been losing some weight and I think I saw some abs on him,” Bryant told NFL Network. “Romo’s been throwing some missiles out there.”
It remains to be seen when Romo is healthy enough to be active on a Sunday — and whether he’ll be the starter or Prescott’s backup when he does suit up for a game. But it’s at least an encouraging sign that Romo is looking good on the practice field.
