Romo, Witten sit out practice

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Per Tim MacMahon of the Cowboys Blog, both Jason Witten (ankle) and Tony Romo sat out Wednesday's light practice. Romo's feeling under the weather, so there's nothing to worry about. Wade "Scrooge" Phillips will have his players practice Thursday and Friday before catching a plane to Philly on Saturday.

Brad Johnson took the reps as first-team quarterback and Tashard Choice was first-team running back despite the fact that Marion Barber was in uniform. Rumors abound that Witten and Romo have retired to their secret hideaway for creating plays.
