That doesn't mean he doesn't want in.
The ruse almost worked too:
“He got in the huddle and broke the huddle,” coach Jason Garrett said. “It was pretty obvious the jersey was a little snug on him. That’s when I looked at it and said, ‘Get him out of the huddle.’ He’s a competitive guy, he wants to play, he wants to be out there.”
As long as it has taken for him to recover from back surgery it should come as no surprise that someone that has been playing football as long as the 34-year old Romo is getting antsy. He also had to know he was going to get busted, and probably chided for doing something foolish.
Yeah, he's close to 100 percent, but with the money the team has invested in him they really don't want him doing anything that might set him back.
That doesn't mean he can't have a little fun with Jason Garrett though.
