Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will sit out practice Friday, July 25 as part of a preplanned day off, according to Jason Garrett. Romo is scheduled to take all the first-team reps Saturday, July 26. "We talked about this beforehand with all of our players. Whenever they are coming back, to be mindful of the two-a-days and what they are doing. You are out here for an hour. It doesn't seem like much. It's a walk through situation. But you warm up for that, cool down and get started again in the afternoon," Garrett said. "We just wanted to make sure we are careful on the two-a-days and then the consecutive two-a-days. I think the schedule sets up pretty well for him the next few days. It gives him a chance to get himself settled in. We will keep an eye on him every day."
Fantasy Tip: It is not surprising that the Cowboys would be cautious in training camp With Romo coming off back surgery, especially early in camp. This will be something to keep an eye on, but it does not appear to be something to be concerned about for now.

That's a good thing for our team and we want to continue to do that. Whether the competition comes from within or without, it's our job to make sure we're always trying to put the most competitive situation available out there on our roster."

"Because if we can't get pressure and we're relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that's a recipe for what happened to us the other night."

One of the things that they did is they possessed the ball a lot. They were in that no-huddle offense and [Rivers] was at the line of scrimmage and they're playing at a pace that they're controlling. Sometimes that's hard on defensive linemen but that's the nature of this league. That happens a lot and you just have to make sure that you're ready for the challenge."

A little bit of a chip on his shoulder, kind of like a bolder or a mountain. We think that's good. He brings that with every opportunity we give him, whether it's a as teams guy or an inside cover guy, as a nickel or as an outside guy. I thought he competed well with some good receivers."
