I Caught up with Cowboys coach Jason Garrett at the Emmitt Smith Celebrity Poker Tournament and Golf Tournament Pairing Party Friday night the Westin Stonebriar Hotel in Frisco.
Garrett said he was pleased the quarterback Tony Romoo and some other veterans are conducting player led workouts during the lockout.
He doesn't know how much work is getting done but he said it's a positive that they are out there. Of course he said he's not surprised.
"It doesn’t surprise me that they’re doing that, given the guys that we have and the logistics of a number of our guys living in town," Garrett said. "It certainly helps that and we don’t really know the details of it but we assume they’re going out there working out. And I think that’s a positive thing.
I jokingly asked if he slipped Romo a minicamp schedule to go by, Garrett distanced himself from that question.
"I don’t know anything about that," Garrett said. "I know that he has been in the program for a few years now so we know he’s got an understanding of how we do things."
On whether he is worried about guys getting injured during the workouts, Garrett said:
"I don’t like to use the word, “worry.” But injuries are part of the game and they are certainly taking some kind of a risk to be involved in these workouts. But again I don’t know much about what’s going on with that stuff. I know guys want to get themselves in shape as I think everybody believes there is going to be a season at some point this year and they have to get themselves football ready."
