Romo Gets Scheduled Rest Day Sunday, Will Not Practice In The Afternoon

OXNARD, Calif. – After taking part in Saturday's opening walkthrough and training camp practice, Tony Romo sat out Sunday's morning walkthrough and will not practice in the afternoon as a scheduled rest day, head coach Jason Garrett said.

The Cowboys have monitored Romo's workload in recent years following his back surgery at the end of the 2013 season. He had a productive offseason program this spring after his twice-fractured left collarbone healed and he opted for the Mumford procedure to help prevent future re-injury to the shoulder area.

Garrett said Romo is not having any problems with his back or shoulder. He's expected to practice Monday.

The Cowboys will be deliberate with other players' practice work coming off injuries. Defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford, who had shoulder surgery in January, will likely not practice Sunday either, Garrett said.

The Cowboys are easing into training camp practice, avoiding competitive offense vs. defense drills Saturday and Sunday in no pads. With Romo resting, Kellen Moore and rookie Dak Prescott will get more quarterback reps Sunday.
