Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo told the team’s official website this week that he could play in a game now, if he had to, but the team will continue to proceed with caution where their franchise quarterback’s recovering back is concerned. Head coach Jason Garrett said this week that Romo will continue to be limited during next week’s mandatory mini-camp.
“We’ll take him day-by-day like we do with all the other guys,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News, “but I don’t see it changing dramatically.”
Of course, Romo’s declaration isn’t a sign that he disagrees with the team’s cautious approach to bringing him back. In fact, Romo is glad that he’s at a point in the offseason where he has the benefit of easing back into full-time action.
“I’m to a point where I can push it and kind of go, and I feel like at this point I could play in a game if I had to,” Romo said. “Obviously you wouldn’t want to right yet, just to let it completely scar up and heal in all the areas that you want. In the next couple weeks I think I’ll be 100 percent.”
