The Dallas Cowboys have been careful to say only positive things about quarterback Tony Romo’s recovery from back surgery, for the most part, but quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson admitted recently that the two-time Pro Bowler has shown some hesitance when throwing the deep ball in camp.
"I think he's been a little tentative with it," Wilson said, per ESPN Dallas. "Hopefully he's going to get four days off now because he won't do much (Tuesday), we travel Wednesday, play the game and then they're off on Friday. Hopefully with four days of complete rehab he can come back on Saturday and start to look like his old self completely."
Those outside the Cowboys locker room have been less optimistic about Romo--including Troy Aikman, who says his career ended due to back issues in 2000. But Wilson remains confident that it’s just a matter of time before Romo is back at full strength.
"He can get the ball down the field, that's not an issue," Wilson said. "I think as camp goes on he'll get nothing but stronger and more confident in his throws."
