OXNARD, Calif. – Through three training camp practices, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett sees Tony Romo looking more like Tony Romo.
Romo did not take part in the organized team activities and minicamp because he was recovering form surgery to remove a cyst from his back in April. He had to work more on his conditioning than his throwing before training camp started.
In the first three days of on-field work, Romo has completed 46 of 63 passes in team and seven-on-seven drills. He has been intercepted twice.
The Cowboys are monitoring his throws in on-air drills in order to keep his arm fresher for the team and seven-on-seven drills.
“I think he’s gotten better and better every day,” Garrett said. “Clearly when he first started practicing on the first day he wasn’t quite himself, but the second day he was better and the third day he was better.
"He’s moving around. You see him get away from the line of scrimmage. You see him react like he normally reacts. The ball is coming out of his hand better. He’s just not quite as stiff. He hasn’t been in this environment for a little while”
