Romo throws in practice for 1st time since August injury

🕐 1 min read

FRISCO, Texas (AP) – Tony Romo is participating in throwing drills at practice for the first time since the Dallas quarterback broke a bone in his back in a preseason game at Seattle in August.

The 36-year-old worked in several individual drills Wednesday in shorts and a T-shirt with his teammates in full pads. While he almost certainly won’t play against Philadelphia on Sunday, it’s the biggest step in his return.

The Cowboys (5-1) have won five straight with backup quarterback Dak Prescott, who is set to face fellow rookie starter Carson Wentz of the Eagles.

Romo was the third quarterback for each drill behind Prescott and veteran backup Mark Sanchez. Romo appeared to be throwing at full velocity, and also dropped back and threw a few passes on the run.
