The last we saw Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, he was wrapping up veteran mini-camp by throwing passes to Dez Bryant and Miles Austin in the end zone of the practice field at Valley Ranch. Since then, there’s been no news, but that might be a good thing where Romo is concerned.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN fame, Romo remains on track to return from the surgical procedure to remove a cyst from his back in time top open training camp on the field with his teammates in Oxnard, CA. That surgery of course, while not considered serious, kept Romo sidelined through OTAs and mini-camp, the aforementioned 10-15 throws notwithstanding.
Werder went on to say that, per his source, Romo has been “rehabbing daily and throwing regularly” in preparation of the first day of camp, set for July 21. 2013 will be Romo’s seventh full season as the Cowboys’ starter and, as you may have heard, his first since landing an unprecedented six-year, $108 million extension.
