Garrett: Romo's Conditioning Not an Issue

Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys runs the ball for a first down against the Philadelphia Eagles at Cowboys Stadium on December 2, 2012 in Arlington, Texas.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo reported to training camp in Oxnard, CA several pounds heavier than his playing weight of 230, but neither head coach Jason Garrett nor Romo himself think the relatively slight difference a big deal, or even out of the ordinary.

Romo told reporters Sunday that his weight is where it always is upon reporting to camp.

I got my weight where I’ve been to each year coming into camp,” Romo said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I feel good about that. You just keep carrying it over, though. You’re always looking to be in great shape.”

Garrett said Romo was one pound over his normal reporting weight, which is not too shabby, considering the Dallas signal caller was held out of all the team’s off-season workouts as he recovered from surgery to remove a non-cancerous cyst from his back.

In the weeks leading up to training camp, Romo attended a boot camp in Southern California where he attempted to ramp up his conditioning by, among other things, running around mountains.

“I recommend it, but not for as long, maybe,” Romo said of the sessions. “It was great. It just got me where I needed to be.”
