OXNARD, California — It was time for the annual Blue-White Scrimmage Sunday at the Dallas Cwboys training camp facility in California.

This is mostly for the young guys, with veterans running through some situational work.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant was not in the mix, though. That hip/quad stiffness forced him to miss practice again.

There wasn't much to talk about in the scrimmage. Rookie running back Joe Randle scored a touchdown, and that's about it.

Quarterback Tony Romo is rounding into form. He hit Jason Witten for a touchdown during full-team work. Romo hasn't missed one rep yet coming back from off-season back surgery.

The offense looks good early... then the defense bounces back late. DeMarcus Ware had a couple of sacks during two-minute drill work.

"I thought offensively we did a lot of good things," Witten said. "It's good work; it's good to be in those competitive situations. The more you're in those, I think the better you're going to be in those situations."

"We got a lot of little things you gotta keep working on, but I think it's a great start for us; it's exciting to see," Romo added.

Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said Tony Romo is improving steadily.

"He's moving much better than he was Day One, and I think for our entire team we're starting to move a lot better in a lot of different situations, and I think today was his best day."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told News 8 Sports on Saturday that he's not concerned about any hip stiffness that Bryant is working through.
