For 2nd Straight Week, Romo Returns To Thurs. Practice On Limited Basis

FRISCO, Texas – Quarterback Tony Romo continues his gradual acclimation back to practice.

For the second straight week, he participated Thursday on a limited basis – again taking scout team reps in 7-on-7 drills and also some scout team reps in one of the team periods, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said.

"We were kind of on a number of passes that we thought he would get in," Linehan said. "We're going to do it day by day as to how he feels, as to how many throws he makes in a practice. He threw a little bit early – took a little time off in between, didn't throw, and then took a couple periods with the show team, which was a good start for him. It's good – it's good to get him back out there in the flow of things."

The Cowboys listed Romo as a limited participant for his first practice work of the week. He made 7-on-7 throws on scout team last Thursday, too, but did not practice Friday.

The team continues to take a day-by-day approach with Romo's work based on how he's feeling. Speaking on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Romo is making "a lot of progress," but there's still no set timetable for his complete recovery. Rookie Dak Prescott is getting set for his eighth consecutive start this Sunday at Cleveland.

Regarding Romo, the team's main focus right now is getting him fully healthy.[embeddedad0]

"I don't know how someone feels," Linehan said. "I know how they look, and he looks better daily."
