IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is throwing passes instead of putting.

Romo was on the field with the Cowboys as organized team activities began Monday.

The quarterback had a tee time Monday morning for a chance to earn a spot in the Byron Nelson Championship, the PGA Tour event this week just down the road from the team's Valley Ranch practice facility. But the tee time conflicted with the voluntary workout.

Romo is getting his first chance to throw passes to receiver Dez Bryant, the team's first-round draft pick last month.

Returning receivers Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd both were given permission to seek a trade after Bryant was drafted. Hurd was on the field Monday, Crayton wasn't.
