The Dallas quarterback also planned to sit out a day of practice this week, the latest indication that the Cowboys are closely managing the 34-year-old Romo's recovery.
Romo pushed himself through a long practice on the team's ninth workout day of camp Sunday. He had been off the previous two days and skipped two practices earlier.
Seven months removed from surgery for a herniated disk, Romo says he's 100 percent but acknowledges that his workout routine has changed significantly.
The Cowboys play the Chargers on Thursday night.
