Although Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and quarterback Tony Romo insist that Romo is 100 percent recovered from offseason back surgery, Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson think there is something off with some of Romo's throws.

Wilson said that Romo’s deep ball has been inconsistent during training camp, although he has been fine on the intermediate routes.

"It's been OK. I think the deeper the ball goes down the field, it's a little bit more inconsistent," Wilson said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "It's just the nine routes and the deep posts. Those things have been a little inconsistent. I think that's all due to his back."

Romo is not expected to play in the team’s preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday.
