Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to sit out the team's first preseason game against the San Diego Chargers on Aug. 7 as part of his recovery from his second back surgery.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to sit out the team's first preseason game against the San Diego Chargers on Aug. 7. 

However, Romo, who had offseason back surgery, expects to suit up in the next preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, per David Helman of the Cowboys' official website: 

"Tony Romo doesn't expect to play Thursday night when the Cowboys open their preseason in San Diego, but he does expect to participate in the following week's home date against Baltimore.

"'I'll probably, we're talking about it, but most likely I'll probably miss -- I'll sit out the San Diego game and then play in Game 2, and we'll go from there,' he said. 

"Thre prediction came fresh off Romo's most extensive work of training camp. The Cowboys went through their two-hour Blue-White scrimmage, which saw a surprising amount of reps from the first-team offense and defense. Romo said he took his most reps of training camp, but the workload didn't feel like more than a typical practice. 

"'It was the most reps, but it doesn't feel that much different than the other days -- we were just out here more times, or more plays,' he said. 'We've been executing real well, and it was good to see that again today.' 

"For his part, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett declined to confirm Romo's role in the game against the Chargers, saying there hasn't been an official discussion on the quarterback's availability. It seems reasonable to expect he'll sit, however, given the typical lack of starters' involvement in early preseason games. 

"We're talking about it -- most likely, unless something changes, I think we're talking about waiting until after San Diego to play in Game 2,' Romo said. 'So we'll probably do that and just be smart like we've been doing.' 

"In the meantime, Romo said immediately following the scrimmage that his back felt fine. As has been the case since the start of training camp, though, he said he'll check in with trainers and coaches going forward.

"'I feel good. Like I've said before, you feel good but you've got to go feel how it is and readjust and all that stuff,' he said. 

"In keeping with his schedule of mixing off days with practice days, Romo said he will practice either Monday or Tuesday before Wednesday's trip to San Diego -- but not likely both. 

"'I'll either sit out tomorrow or Tuesday, we'll see. I'll talk to the trainers, see the number of reps, see what they tell me and go from there,' he said. 'I envision, right now...I'll probably practice tomorrow instead of Tuesday if we keep going with the schedule we've been doing. Or maybe it's tomorrow and come back Tuesday, but we'll see what they say.'" 

ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer adds more details on Romo's progress in training camp in his Aug. 3 blog

"Romo completed 17 of 25 passes in his drills on Saturday, throwing two touchdown passes to Dez Bryant and Gavin Escobar in situational work. The team-first offense ran 31 plays. The most passes Romo had thrown in his first four padded practices were 18.

"Romo and the Cowboys have consistently said he is 100 percent even though he has sat out of two practices after days off. They have a long-term plan with the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the San Francisco 49ers in mind.

"'I feel good,' Romo said. 'Like I said before, I feel good but you've got to go do it and feel how it is and you adjust and all that stuff.'

"Coach Jason Garrett liked what he saw in Romo.

"'I think you saw his command of this offense throughout a lot of that stuff,' Romo said. 'I thought his decision making, for the most part, was pretty good. He had one bad decision at the end of one of the series, but for the most part I think he's looking more and more comfortable and getting better every day.'" 

 

The 34-year-old Romo is entering his 10th NFL season. He has thrown for 29,565 yards, 208 touchdowns and 101 interceptions in 130 career regular-season games with the Cowboys, per ESPN stats
