 IRVING, Texas (AP) -Dallas Cowboys quarterback coach Wade Wilson won't have to watch Tony Romo play on television this week.
Wilson is back at work after completing his five-game NFL suspension for buying and using performance-enhancing substances that he said were to try to ``improve the quality'' of his life after living with diabetes for more than 20 years.
His first game is Sunday's hyped matchup of 5-0 teams against the New England Patriots and coach Bill Belichick, who didn't miss a game when he got in trouble this season for something that could have affected the outcome of a game.
Belichick was fined $500,000 - five times more than Wilson was fined - but wasn't suspended for violating a league rule that prohibits clubs from using video cameras on the sideline for any purpose, including recording signals relayed to opposing players.
``I have my personal thoughts, but I don't think they really mean too much,'' Wilson said Thursday. ``The commissioner made his decision. ... Personally, I thought I was treated pretty harshly. I deal with that, and what he wants to do with the Patriots and their situation, that's his decision.''
Wilson, a 48-year-old former NFL quarterback who has been in coaching since retiring as a player, couldn't be at the team's facility or have any contact with coaches and players during his suspension. He had to keep up with Romo and the Cowboys through television and newspapers.
``Being away from football the last five weeks has been pretty tough on me personally,'' Wilson said. ``I didn't knowingly do anything wrong, but I did, and the commissioner came down on me. So I have to live with that and try to put it behind me now.''
Watching from afar, Wilson has seen Romo throw an NFC-high 13 touchdowns. There was the incredible scramble for a first down after retrieving a ball 33 yards behind the line of scrimmage against St. Louis, and the five-interception game the Cowboys won Monday night in Buffalo.
``He's been real impressive. He had a little hiccup last week, but still came away with the win, so I thought he showed a lot of poise coming back,'' Wilson said.
``It's good to have Wade back,'' Romo said. ``He wishes he could have been here. He's a worker. He's got a great mind for the game. He's excited to get in here and help us.''
