Jerry Jones told reporters this week that, in all likelihood, the Cowboys would be without their quarterback, Tony Romo, for next week’s mandatory veteran mini-camp as Romo continues to recover from the April surgical procedure to remove a cyst from his back.
The Cowboys could also be without their best defensive player, defensive end DeMarcus Ware, Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News reports. Ware is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and, while he is reportedly doing well in rehab, Ware said he has yet to be cleared.
“I’m not 100 percent,” Ware said. “But I’m good enough to play.”
Some good news, head coach Jason Garrett said that he expects Ware to be ready for training camp next month.
“We ask them to do what they can do so DeMarcus and a number of the other guys have been involved in individual periods,” Garrett said. “We kept them out of competitive situations. He responded well. He’s working hard in his rehab and his treatment and we fully expect him to be ready to go in camp.”
