After an offseason of limitations stemming from his recovery from back surgery, Tony Romo will be a go for all activities in camp, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Romo suffered a herniated disk in his back last season in Week 16, an injury that forced him out of the Week 17 win-and-in matchup with the Eagles (they lost) and required surgery--his second back surgery in a span of just eight months. The three-time Pro Bowler never experienced any setbacks in his rehab, but for obvious reasons, the Cowboys opted to proceed with caution where their franchise quarterback was concerned all offseason.
“He’s been working very hard on his conditioning and his throwing, and we do anticipate him being ready to go for all aspects,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “Like with anybody else coming off of an injury, though, we’ll evaluate him on a day by day basis and just see how he’s doing. In a situation like this, you want to monitor his throws. You want to make sure his reps are quality reps, that he’s not just out there banging balls, so to speak. So we want to make sure we’re very thoughtful about that, really like we would any player who is coming off an injury, and evaluate how he’s handling the work and continue to progress with him or dial it back a little bit.
“But he’s had no issues, no obstacles, nothing that’s held him back from doing anything. He’s certainly on schedule and ready to go full go.”
