Tony Romo didn’t stay at practice long, and he wasn’t dressed for it anyway. The quarterback sat out his second practice in five full practices the team has had in training camp so far.

But owner Jerry Jones said everything is just fine with Romo.

“He is 100 percent. He’s 100 percent,” Jones said during practice Tuesday. “He’s just being real smart and sensitive about having come off the back surgery. He’s certainly not losing any ground from the standpoint of opening up against San Francisco [in the regular-season opener].”

Vice president Stephen Jones had said earlier in the day he expected Romo to practice, but head coach Jason Garrett revealed at his press conference that Romo would sit out. Romo did participate in the walk-through Tuesday morning.

“I just had a brief visit with him on the way out to practice,” Jerry Jones said. “We feel real good. We’re really pleased with the way he’s practicing and the work he’s getting done and what he’s doing both on and off the field, but nothing in any way would concern you certainly about his back.”
