Romo was waiting for the Cowboys in California, having gone through a self-described boot camp in the mountains while trying to cram a full offseason of conditioning into about a month and a half.
He said he worked as hard as he could to get ready, and practicing Tuesday when Garrett said it might be a day off was another sign he feels good enough to keep going.
“Football is hard to duplicate an 11-on-11 experience with the exact same tempo and feeling,” Romo said. “But there are people around you and it’s something you need to do. I feel very comfortable right now.”
