It was only the preseason, and the Cowboys’ first-team offense was on the field for only one series. But Tony Romo enjoyed every minute of it.
Romo hadn’t played in a game since Oct. 25 when he broke his left clavicle on a hit by Giants linebacker Michael Boley. The Cowboys quarterback missed the last 10 games.
“I was excited,” Romo said. “It got my juices flowing a little bit. It was good, and I’m looking forward to my next opportunity.”
Romo went 3-for-5 for 33 yards, but he drove the Cowboys 56 yards in nine offensive plays before David Buehler made good on a 42-yard field goal.
“It’s important to have success and put points on the board,” Romo said. “I felt the guys looked good, but we are going to have to look at the tape and fix the couple of mistakes we made. The guys’ effort was there, and it was easy to see.”
The Cowboys were missing two offensive linemen, with guard Montrae Holland (back) and center Andre Gurode (knee) sitting out. Holland and Gurode could return to practice Saturday.
