ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) —
Tony Romo hasn't taken a snap in a game since he played through a back injury to lead a drive that kept Dallas in playoff contention late last season.
The 34-year-old quarterback has eased his way back in since surgery to repair a herniated disk, staying out of competitive situations during the offseason and taking frequent days off at training camp.

Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday that sending National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border will defend not just his home state but the entire nation from "narco-terrorists" and that he doesn't know how long they will have to be deployed before the national threat is quelled.
The Republican's possible 2016 White House aspirations got a boost nationally last month when he ordered 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border. Perry traveled to Camp Swift Army National Guard Training Center 30 miles outside Austin for a firsthand look at the training they are getting for deployment — while perhaps hoping to look presidential.
