Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has remained in close contact since season’s end and says the franchise quarterback is feeling much better since undergoing back surgery to repair a herniated disk in the final week of the season.
“He says he feels really good,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think anybody who has that surgery will tell you the same thing: Initially, they feel great because there’s so much pressure back there on the nerves and whatever goes into that injury. So they get immediate relief, and then they have to recover from the actual surgery itself.
“So he’s moving around and everyone’s optimistic he’ll be back and ready to go for the offseason program.”
The injury brought an unceremonious end to what was, all things considered, a good season for Romo. He completed nearly 64 percent of his passes for 3,828 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. And, the way it played out, the last thing Romo did in 2013 was lead the Cowboys on a game-winning fourth quarter drive against the Redskins in Washington.
