With a 13 for 18, two touchdown performance in the dress rehearsal game against the Bengals under his belt, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has his sights set on September 8 and the regular season opener against the Giants at AT&T Stadium.
Romo, who missed most of the offseason after undergoing cyst removal surgery on his back, said at this point, his health is no issue.
“Yeah, we’re good to go,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m 100 percent.”
There’s still almost two weeks until the opener, but the Dallas signal caller doesn’t plan on wasting any time in preparing for Eli Manning and co.
“[Preparation work for the Giants] will probably start tonight or tomorrow morning,” Romo said after Saturday night’s victory over Cincinnati. “I think more than anything, I’ve sprinkled in a little bit but now I’m going to get real tightened up as far as a little more situational than an overview per se. I think the team will probably wait until the middle of the week but more than anything my stuff will start here this weekend.”
