OXNARD, Calif. — Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo on Saturday took part in his first contact practice since undergoing back surgery seven months ago.
"I thought Tony threw it well," said owner Jerry Jones. "He’s got a plan. … I’m glad he’s mature enough, experienced enough â and he should be â to understand his body enough to make those kinds of decisions.”
Romo did not go through individual drills early in the session and when he did throw on one-on-one work putting receivers against cornerbacks, his turns can only when throwing to starters Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. But when it was time for seven-on-seven drills, Romo was particularly sharp and on-point.
Jones said Romo’s limired work is to "just not overdo it. We need to have him ready to go (in Week 1 of the regular season) against San Francisco."
Word is Romo plans to participate again in the Sunday afternoon session.
