Romo back to being the old Romo

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he feels good. Coach Jason Garrett thinks Romo looks good.

Romo missed the final 10 games of last season with a fractured left clavicle. Then, the lockout kept him away from the Cowboys' staff during the off-season. But everyone is convinced Romo is as good as old.

He completed 3 of 5 passes for 33 yards on one series Thursday against the Broncos before the Cowboys settled for a 42-yard field goal.

"I think he looks as normal as can be," Garrett said Tuesday. "I think he's moving around well. He's clearly in very good shape. It doesn't look like the injury has affected him in any way in terms of his movement, in terms of his ability to throw the football. He seemed comfortable in the game the other night. So I don't think there's any issue of getting acclimated of playing in games anymore this year than there are in a typical year. He looks like the same guy to me."

Romo has been fully recovered since the end of last season and is ready to play a real game for the first time since last October.

"It feels good," Romo said when asked about his collarbone. "I’m excited to be playing football, and I just can’t wait for these games to get started."
