Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s rehabilitation program seems to be rolling along nicely.
According to a report by David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Romo has completed the first phase of his rehab--from a December procedure to correct a herniated disk in his back--and will soon move on to the second. The first phase involved broad core strengthening exercises and the second will focus on isolating the affected area of the back without getting the spine involved.
In a couple weeks, Romo is expected to begin what Moore describes as “low impact work.”
This latest surgery was the second on Romo’s back in an eight month span--he had to have a non-cancerous cyst removed back in April and, though he missed OTAs, was back with the team in time for training camp. Romo is expected to return from this procedure in time to participate in the team’s offseason conditioning program.
