    Why is Jay Ratliff out now? He & Mackenzy Bernadeau suffered pulled hamstrings in Saturday's conditioning tests.

    I remember the nineties when the first day of camp players started out in full pads and contact drills. now they only have contact drills every other day and wait until the third day to start that.

    Sean Lissemore has replaced Ratliff on the first-team defense at DT.

    First 12 Personnel Group has Witten and Hanna on it. Romo already playing with the hard counts.

    Dunbar getting the reps with the ones behind Murray during this period. Tanner on scout defense with Randle.

    Holloman, Magee and Reed trying to get some shadow work in behind the 1s. Mental reps. pic.twitter.com/YaynoenIWn
    Kiffin, Marinelli and Henderson running scout offense for 2s. Monte is the QB. Stationary.
    Walk through has a lot of the look of last year. Complete with mid-session team huddle around Garrett. But Callahan running show with Romo.

    Todd Archer ‏@toddarcher 14m
    Joseph Randle on practice field for first time. Missed offseason with thumb injury
    Jason Garrett might need Segway with way he's roaming around practice field from unit to unit.
    Interesting to me: QBs wearing wristbands in practice. Haven't seen that here before.

    Rowan Kavner ‏@KavnerDC 14m
    Ratliff the only defensive players not on the field for the walkthrough
    A lot of James Hanna in early 12 personnel

    Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon 13m
    Monte Kiffin is getting after the D during walkthrough. "Goldang it, that's what I'm talking about!" Not quite same vocabulary as Rob Ryan.

    David Moore ‏@DavidMooreDMN 10m
    Kevin Kowalaki and David Arkin working at G with starters out. First round pick Travis Frederick is the C.

    I have not seen Joseph Randle get any run during the walkthrough.

    Hanna going first at tight end with Witten
    Romo first pass a slant to Terrence Williams
    First fumble snap between romo and Frederick

    Bryan Broaddus ‏@BryanBroaddus 8m
    Allen and Church at the safeties. Lissemore is taking Hatcher's spot at the nose as he shifts to the under tackle. Bass + Hayden are the 2s
    Don't ever remember Romo wearing a wrist band with the play calls on it. Matter of fact all the QBs are wearing them.

    Brandon George ‏@dmn_george 1m
    We have our first fumbled snap of walk through between Tony Romo and new C Travis Frederick.
    Boy, Tony Romo has really benefited from running mountains. Laser passes so far.

    Brad Sham ‏@Boys_Vox 5m
    Hear us ( w @Spags52 ) tonight on Training Camp Today on FSN: get settled on Gs who are healthy & play 'em. Plus a DL talks about no Ratliff

    Tom Orsborn ‏@tom_orsborn 48s
    Romo looks just fine. Of course, according to Jerry, it won't matter if he's behind "a porous line," which he has now with all the injuries.

    No sign of Danny Coale's crutches yet. Still looking

    Calvin Watkins ‏@calvinwatkins 1m
    Joseph Randle getting some run now. Nice run and then he caught a pass out of the backfield.

    Carlos A. Mendez ‏@calexmendez 1m
    Garrett is watching the offense. Callahan setting the script but Garrett asks, 'Repeat of Play 2 please,' and it's done.
    Justin Durant is the first SAM.

    Clarence Hill ‏@clarencehilljr 54s
    First sighting of joseph Randle. And he looks fast

    Bryan Broaddus ‏@BryanBroaddus 57s
    Nice catch out of the backfield by Randle going to his right. Able to adjust on the move. One of his strengths is catching the ball.

    Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon 47s
    Tony Romo, who couldn't do normal offseason conditioning routine due to surgery to remove cyst from back, is listed at 236 pounds.

    Lots of convo about Romo's weight on 105.3 The Fan. Looks like I wasn't crazy or the only one...

    Have to give Feederick credit for one thing, he is confident in making his line calls on what he sees. He is quick to do it.
    First hour of practice and Kiffin dialing up the safety blitz. Walks Church in the box and shoots him inside but nice pickup by back.
    Several passes already being defensed here. Johnson vs Escobar and Ernie Sims with INT on tip ball.

    Todd Archer ‏@toddarcher 2m
    First 7-route connection for Romo and Witten of camp
    Second straight poor route from Dwayne Harris earns a You kidding me from Jason Garrett.
    Jon Machota ‏@jonmachota 3m
    First team Cowboys defense in walk-thru: Ware, Spencer, Lissemore, Hatcher, Carr, Claiborne, Will Allen, Church, Lee, Durant, Carter.

    Carlos A. Mendez ‏@calexmendez 2m
    Loss and Hatch inside with no Ratliff available. Liss the 1 tech.
    Garrett asks for another repeat. A blitz beat that Harris didn't run correctly apparently. Turns to Dez behind him to talk about the route.
    Garrett continues to ask for repeats. Not always friendly about it lol
    Nick Stephens already throwing better than he did in OTAs.

    Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon 3m
    Tony Romo weighs more than Sean Lee and a few other Cowboys linebackers.

    Clarence Hill ‏@clarencehilljr 1m
    Sean lee nearly decapitates Dwayne harris is walk through

    Romo is going to need those extra pounds given the pounding he is going to take. Killer and Arkin are starting for heavens sake

    Lot of repeat plays for the offense so far in walkthrough
    Pistol look w Kyle Orton running second team O.
    Joseph Randle bobbles ball on screen pass. Maybe he's pressing with the time he missed

    Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon 5m
    James Hanna is working with the starters as the No. 2 TE. He's a talent, which is why I don't get the Gavin Escobar pick.

    Bryan Broaddus ‏@BryanBroaddus 5m
    Last few reps both Claiborne and Carr have been playing much tighter to the receivers. Really plays to their strengths.

    Carlos A. Mendez ‏@calexmendez 3m
    Murray is catching a lot of balls. Safety valve. Cowboys loved his hands when they drafted him. He and Romo exchanging smiles.
    OL just sprinted to the line. #neverseenthatbefore
    Ernie Sims goes like a missile at Tanner on a swing pass. Makes Scandrick laugh. 'It's a walk-through, man.'
    Walk thru done. Went 10 minutes over.

    Tony Romo currently weighs more than Sean Lee.


    That's a problem.

    15 lbs over his previous playing weight is a problem? I imagine these guys drop throughout the season normally so he should be back to his regular playing weight in no time.

    That said...since he basically hadn't worked out all offseason due to the back surgery, color me still unconcerned.

    And in general, it's just too soon to spaz out over stuff... End of camp, yes, but on the first day, no.

    Not freaking out about it, but how about this:

    Big Ben is 6 foot FIVE and weighs 241.

    Romo is 6"2 and only weighs five pounds less. I understand he wasn't able to train consistently with the cyst, but that doesn't mean you keep on eating Twinkies and neglecting your diet. I believe Romo was 219 when he entered the league. And to me, 15 lbs is a lot, especially with Romo being 33 years old. Not a good combination.

    A little shocking to see Romo weighing so much. Hopefully he can work it off and stop eating lard.

    He's a QB throwing in camp who will be just fine weight-wise when the reg season starts.

    I understand you are a good fitness guru, but I really do think he'll be fine.

    We have much bigger concerns, imo.
