Draft Scout Tony Romo News
10/23/14 - QB Tony Romo will face the Redskins Monday for the first time since last December when he overcame a painful herniated disk to lead the Cowboys to a 24-23 victory. Romo said it was the most pain he has ever experienced. It was the last game of the season for Romo, who underwent surgery to repair the herniated disk and missed the season finale.
"I didn't quite know my season was going to be over after I walked off the field," Romo said Thursday. "Sometimes I cringe thinking about it. Just part of playing professional sports, you're playing in a game and you're hurt or banged up or whatever and you just kind of play through it. As a competitor you kind of feel like, ‘I'll worry about it after the game,' and you do everything you can. It felt like the season was on the line at the time so you kind of lay it on the line and you let the chips fall after the game."
DT Amobi Okoye practiced for the first time all season after opening the season on the reserve/non-football injury list. It was actually his first practice since recovering from anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a brain condition that causes memory loss and seizures, causing him to be in a coma for three months last year. Okoye hasn't played in an NFL game since 2012.
"It was good, it was worth it," said Okoye, who worked with the scout team. "It was mixed emotions. It felt like it naturally was coming back. I've played six years in the league (and), it doesn't take too long for stuff to come back to you."
The Cowboys have three weeks to put him on the active roster. Then they will have to activate him, cut him, or keep on NFI.
10/20/14 - QB Tony Romo is playing some of the best football of his career. He is certainly as accurate and as efficient has he has ever been. Romo completed 17 of 23 passes for 279 yards with three touchdowns, one interception and a 135.7 passer rating in Dallas' 31-21 victory against the Giants. Jerry Jones said it was the best performance of Romo's career.
10/19/14 - QB Tony Romo has thrown a touchdown pass in 35 consecutive games. He finished with three scores.
10/16/14 - QB Tony Romo returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday with back, rib and ankle injuries. He remains sore but he will be ready to go for the Giants game.
"I thought he looked good," tight end Jason Witten said of Romo. "He got hit a little bit in Seattle, got knocked around, but he looked good coming off the day off yesterday."
10/15/14 - QB Tony Romo took his normal day off Wednesday as he nursed back, rib and ankle injuries. He said he will practice Thursday and play in the game on Sunday.
