IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas quarterback Tony Romo probably won't have to sneak into competitive situations when the Cowboys hold their first training camp practice this week.

The 34-year-old quarterback tried to get some unauthorized reps in a jersey swap with Caleb Hanie during minicamp in June. That came about six months after a herniated disk knocked Romo out of the season finale and resulted in back surgery.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he expects Romo to be "full go" for the first workout Thursday in Oxnard, California.

Romo has his primary weapons in running back DeMarco Murray, receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten. But the defense is missing linebacker Sean Lee, who's out for the season after tearing a left knee ligament in the first offseason workout.
