Romo set to return at Cowboys training camp

BY foxsports • July 20, 2013

Tony Romo is scheduled to take part in the Dallas Cowboys' first training camp practice Sunday afternoon in Oxnard, Calif. It will be Romo's first action in a practice setting since having a cyst removed from his back in April.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Saturday that Romo "looks great" and "looks lean" but added that his throws will be monitored during camp.

"I don't think it will be significant," Garret said. "He's been throwing regularly for the last month or so. He feels good, but we'll certainly watch that when camp starts and just make sure he's getting the right pitch count as we go."

Garrett then clarified that there isn't an exact "pitch count." He said they would determine how much Romo will throw by watching his passes and by communicating with the 33-year-old quarterback.

Romo was held out of organized team activities and mini-camp as he recovered from the procedure. Last season, Romo set a career-high by attempting 648 passes. Only Detroit's Matthew Stafford [727] and New Orleans' Drew Brees [670] attempted more.
