Tony Romo aided by skipping Wednesday practices

Tony Romo missed his third consecutive Wednesday practice.

Three weeks ago, it was a big deal. Now, it’s considered a blessing for backup quarterback Brandon Weeden to get practice repetitions he’d otherwise never get, while Romo goes through a series of core-strengthening exercises.

While Jason Garrett has refused to say whether this will be Romo’s routine the rest of the season, it doesn’t make any sense to change it since he’s playing well.

In his first two games, Romo completed 42 of 66 passes for 457 yards with two touchdowns, three interceptions and a passer rating of 75.1. In the last two games, Romo has completed 40 of 52 passes for 479 yards with five touchdowns and one interception with a passer rating of 128.6.

He’s also moving better in the pocket, eluding defenders and creating more time to find receivers. He was sacked seven times in the first two games and once in the last two games.

He also has had runs of 16 and 21 yards in the last two games, converting key third-down situations each time.

“I’m continuing to get healthier each week that goes by and that’s encouraging,” Romo said. “My ability to move and react and fire and activate everything when you want it -- for me personally that has been a huge difference since the first two weeks.”
