Head coach Jason Garrett’s starting to see the QB Tony Romo he’s used to.
Romo hasn’t always looked like himself throughout camp, particularly on the deep ball, but he connected to multiple receivers on the deep pass in Saturday’s practice and is expected to practice once again Sunday.
“I thought he had a really good day,” Garrett said. “He looked like himself. Obviously having the time off prior to the game and after the game I think was good for him. Our thing all along with him has been monitor the work, communicate, get great feedback and then make our next best decision, and I think we’ve done that up to this point.”
Garrett could tell from Romo’s expressions that he felt more comfortable. That showed in his throws and throughout Saturday’s practice, particularly on deep passes to Terrance Williams and Gavin Escobar.
He also seemed to get through the practice all right, considering he’s going again Sunday.
Romo slowly seems to be making his way back, so perhaps the plan the team had in place for him is working. Romo is a bit of a risk coming off back surgery, but could be a steal if he can make it through the whole season. He's ranked 14th among our QBs and can be had in the 11th round.
