Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones isn’t worried about Tony Romo’s lack of participation in offseason workouts--he sat out while recovering from surgery to remove a cyst from his back--and says that Romo will be ready to go when training camp opens this Sunday.
Romo was reportedly cleared by the training staff to practice this week, and Jones is optimistic about Romo’s health going into the weekend.
"He feels good. He looks good," Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. "He's uniquely out running mountains right now in the West, so he's getting himself physically in shape. He's never thrown a lot in the offseason. This is a time where he rests his arm. I'm confident his weight is right and feel he'll be in shape and let it go."
Back in May, Romo brushed off any concern about the back.
"I feel a lot better," Romo said. "It was something that was there a little bit, kind of annoying. I'd rather feel 100 percent here. Hopefully I'll be back for mini-camp and be ready to go, but we're just being smart now for the next couple of weeks."
Of course, the team opted to hold Romo out of mini-camp, too. But if this helped Romo get back to 100 percent for camp proper, we suppose that’s a good thing.
