FRISCO, Texas – Quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Friday after participating on a limited basis Thursday for the first time since injuring his back in late August.
Romo officially has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles, and rookie Dak Prescott will make his seventh straight start.
But Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Romo took "a good step" in his injury rehab this week.
"He had a good day yesterday," Garrett said before Friday's practice. "He did more. He threw the individual stuff. He also threw the scout team 7-on-7, so that was positive for him. He also did rehab away from the team with our strength and conditioning guys and our trainers. So he'll continue to work on that to get his conditioning right. Again, I thought it was a good step."
Asked if Romo has done more work than expected at this point in his recovery, Garrett said, "Not necessarily. Again, we take it day by day and depending on how he feels, we adjust it accordingly."
