There was a neat little tradition that unfolded throughout the 2014 season for the Dallas Cowboys. Every Wednesday, rain or shine, Tony Romo was typically off from practice.
Bodies are different and things across seasons change, but having that day off in the middle of the week certainly helped Romo once it was implemented into his routine four years ago. ESPN’s Todd Archer outlined it the following January.
The Cowboys wanted to limit Romo’s consecutive days of work. In training camp he did not work more than two straight days. He sat out of two of their four preseason games.
”It’s really no different than what you would do with any player coming off an injury,” Garrett said. “What we found out and what he kind of expressed to us was, ‘You know, I don’t feel quite as good when I work three, four, five days in a row.
