Romo throws to Bryant, Austin during final day of minicamp

IRVING – Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw during Thursday’s final day of minicamp at Valley Ranch.

Now, Romo didn’t have his helmet on and he wasn’t dropping back with a pass rush pursuing, but about 10-15 tosses from the five-yard line to Miles Austin and Dez Bryant in the back of the endzone was the first time Romo has thrown a football in front of media members since having back surgery to remove a cyst.

Romo’s throwing motion looked the same and he didn’t appear to be in any pain.

Romo said on Tuesday that he’s been throwing on his own and would be a full participant if minicamp had been scheduled for next week.

“We feel good about him going into camp and [being] ready to go,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday. “My understanding is he’s ready to go, he’ll be ready to go for training camp.”

Training camp begins on July 21 in Oxnard, Calif.
