Cowboys practice report: Tony Romo, Tyron Smith (illness) sit out Sunday

Sunday is being treated like a Wednesday at Valley Ranch with the Cowboys upcoming Thursday night game against the Bears.

That meant quarterback Tony Romo had his scheduled “Wednesday” off on Sunday, participating in the walkthrough but not the practice.

Also missing from practice was left tackle Tyron Smith, who is sick.

Other no shows during the first 30 minutes open to the media included injured defensive backs Tyler Patmon (knee) and Jeff Heath (thumb).

Linebacker Rolando McClain participated even though he noticeably had issues running in last Thursday’s game against the Eagles. McClain played 49 of 77 defensive snaps.
