Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has yet to get on the field this offseason for OTAs or mini-camp as he recovers from a procedure to remove a cyst from his back back in April, but the Dallas signal caller insists his absence from practice is a precautionary measure more than anything, that he should be ready to go as soon as next week.
“I feel good. Just being smart,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We could go this week but it looks like the training staff guys just want to be cautious, take it back a couple days after and then start up full speed next week.”
Suffice it to say, the 33-year-old Romo has been in the league long enough that mid-June isn’t really the time to fight through injuries.
“I think more than anything, I feel ready to go,” he said. “I think as a player you’re always trying to push through, but this time of year it’s intelligent to really be patient with it. Anytime you go through anything like that, be smart and make sure you don’t do anything dumb.”
