Tony Romo made his preseason debut on Saturday night and appeared to answer questions about his troublesome back.

Romo was 4-of-5 for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens defense before being replaced by backup Brandon Weeden. Dez Bryant was on the receiving end of Romo’s touchdown pass.

Of course Romo did not exactly endear himself on the teams first drive of the game fumbling the ball on a hand-off to running back DeMaro Murray.

Last year Romo threw for 3,828 yards, 31 touchdowns, 10 interceptions. He fumbled four times.

The Cowboys next preseason game comes next Saturday at Miami.
