Romo takes part in throw­ing drills

Baltimore Sun - - RAVENS & NFL -

Cow­boys quar­ter­back Tony Romo par­tic­i­pated in throw­ing drills at prac­tice Wed­nes­day for the first time since he broke a bone in his back in an ex­hi­bi­tion game at Seat­tle in Au­gust.

Romo, 36, worked in sev­eral in­di­vid­ual drills in shorts and a T-shirt with his team­mates in full pads. While he al­most cer­tainly won’t play against the Ea­gles on Sun­day, it’s the big­gest step in his lat­est re­turn from in­jury.

The Cow­boys have won five straight with Dak Prescott, who is set to face fel­low rookie starter Car­son Wentz of the Ea­gles.

Romo was the third quar­ter­back for each drill be­hind Prescott and vet­eran backup Mark Sanchez. Romo, who ap­peared to be throw­ing at full ve­loc­ity, also dropped back and threw a few passes on the run. He was listed as a non­par­tic­i­pant on the prac­tice report. Ware’s ring re­cov­ered: Den­ver po­lice ar­rested two men on sus­pi­cion of break­ing into the home of Bron­cos line­backer DeMar­cus Ware and steal­ing his Su­per Bowl 50 ring.

Po­lice spokesman John White said Ware’s stolen prop­erty had been re­cov­ered.

The sus­pects, Billy McCaslin, 40, and Ser­gio Ir­reza, 31, were iden­ti­fied through tips from the public af­ter po­lice an­nounced that the break-in oc­curred while Ware was at Mon­day night’s game against the Tex­ans. The two sus­pects have not yet been charged.

Ware, who has been side­lined since Sept. 18 with a bro­ken right fore­arm, re­turned to prac­tice and the Bron­cos hope he’ll be able to play Sun­day. New­ton changes opin­ion: Pan­thers quar­ter­back Cam New­ton has changed his stance on how he views con­cus­sions now that he’s had one.

New­ton, who just last month down­played con­cerns over the long-term ef­fects of re­peated blows to the head, said that he now bet­ter un­der­stands that “con­cus­sions are real.”

Speak­ing pub­licly for the first time about the con­cus­sion he suf­fered Oct. 2 against the Fal­cons, the league’s reign­ing Most Valu­able Player said he needs to be more care­ful in the fu­ture, call­ing the hit by Fal­cons line­backer Deion Jones “pre­ventable.” Ex­tra points: WR Bran­don Mar­shall ( foot), C Nick Man­gold (an­kle) and DE Muham­mad Wilk­er­son ( an­kle) were among 12 Jets who sat out prac­tice. ... Bills RB LeSean McCoy spent prac­tice work­ing out on his own to test a nag­ging left ham­string in­jury, leav­ing his play­ing sta­tus un­cer­tain for Sun­day against the Pa­tri­ots. S Aaron Wil­l­liams (neck) is not ex­pected to play. ... The Jets placed QB Geno Smith (torn ACL) on in­jured re­serve, which will end his sea­son.
