Coming off back surgery, Romo practiced Thursday, was off Friday, then practiced Saturday and Sunday. The entire team was off Monday.
He took part in full-contact practices Saturday and Sunday.
"I thought he looked good," Wilson said. "He looked fresh. It wasn't bothering him at all."
Romo didn't throw a lot of deep balls and "was never really in a position where he had to torque or twist his back to get off a throw," the paper noted.
"I feel personally like I've just started to come into the player that wanted to be six, seven years ago," Romo said. "I think -- and I've said it before -- but I think over the course of the next four or five years, you'll see the best version of me that I've had throughout my career. That's for a lot of different reasons. But I really believe that, and I believe that will show as we go forward. So I'm excited about that. As my body continues to get healthier and healthier, it's going to be better."
Romo said he will spend three to four hours a day doing rehab, maintenance or strengthening exercises for his back. He said there is no pain in it.
"They'll definitely get sick and tired of me over here in the training room and just all the areas around the facility here because you're going to want to get inflammation and all that stuff," Romo said. "If anyone's ever had surgery, you have to do all those things. A back, any time you've ever had a back, the smart people change the routine going forward. They make sure that they commit to a routine that's going to give them the best chance to be strong in all the other areas you need to be."
Romo was limited during all of mini camp and organized team activities after having back surgery in December.
"I think his recovery has been outstanding," coach Jason Garrett said. "He's been diligent in his rehab. He's made great strides. I thought we did a good job as an organization being disciplined throughout the offseason making what he does in practice fairly consistent and not allowing him to get into competitive situations. We worked through that and it gave him another month to stay out of that. He has been working hard on his conditioning, on his throwing and we do anticipate him being ready to go for all aspects."
Romo will be evaluated on a daily basis. If he struggles with the workload, the amount of snaps he takes could be dialed back.
"He has had no issues," Garrett said, "no obstacles holding him back."
