Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was limited throughout the team’s offseason program, as he continues to recover from back surgery, but receiver Cole Beasley doesn’t think this will affect the franchise quarterback when training camp opens in Oxnard, CA later this month.
“Romo’s one of the best to do it, so he’s one of those rare guys that doesn’t have to be out there every day to kind of see what’s going on,” Beasley told the team’s official website. “He studies film so much, just watching us practice on the field and seeing what we do on film in practice, and what’s working for us and the timing and all, he can get all that without being out there. So, he’s real good about that.”
Romo’s 2013 campaign was bookended by back surgeries. He had surgery to remove a cyst from the back last offseason, then went under the knife again back in December to repair a herniated disk. Like Beasley, most of the Cowboys who have spoke on the subject are optimistic about his recovery, and all reports near the end of the offseason program had Romo on target to be a full participant in training camp later this month.
