Tony Romo Swaps Practice Jerseys To Fool Dallas Cowboys Coaches Into Letting Him Take Snaps

Tony Romo Swaps Practice Jerseys To Fool Dallas Cowboys Coaches Into Letting Him Take Snaps

Tony Romo underwent back surgery last December in a bid to cure long-standing injury problems.

And despite the Dallas Cowboys wanting to take his recovery slowly, the quarterback just can’t stay out of the game.

Romo had been held out of competitive drills during this week’s mini-camp but he came up with an audacious way to get on the field.

So he swapped jerseys with fellow QB Caleb Hanie in the hope he could take part in some snaps.

But he was soon rumbled.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said:

He got in the huddle and broke the huddle.

“It was pretty obvious the jersey was a little snug on him. That’s when I looked at it and said, ‘Get him out of the huddle.’

“He’s a competitive guy, he wants to play, he wants to be out there.”

Romo thought he would get away with it, saying:

You saw that, huh? We were just going out there and getting some throws in today.

“It was a good day. Anytime you’re getting healthier and getting ready to go, you want to ramp it up. We’ll have plenty of time for that here soon.”

Romo is expected to be fit for the start of the new NFL season in September.
