Unlike when Tom Brady was barred from contacting his teammates during his four-game suspension, Tony Romo’s injury hasn’t kept him from staying in contact with his Dallas Cowboys. Despite not being able to practice the past couple of months and a rookie quarterback taking over his role with great success, Romo has stayed true to the leader that the team has come to admire and build off of.
“Same ol’ Tony, he’s still coaching,” defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence said to the Star-Telegram. “He’s working hard in the weight room. I see him more in the weight room than the locker room, so that’s a surprise – seeing a quarterback in the weight room.
Aside from Romo being in the weight room a lot, he also hosted his teammates at his North Dallas home for some team camaraderie to keep things light during the bye week.
“I think that’s big in that he’s just trying to be healthy and be the best teammate he can be during the time being,” center Travis Frederick said. “When things switch around, he’s going to be the best that he can be.”
