Jerry Encouraged By Romo's Showing Thus Far

Tony Romo has been a full participant in training camp after missing OTAs and mini-camp due to minor back surgery



    After sitting out all organized team activities and mini-camp as he recovered from surgery to remove a non-cancerous cyst from his back, Tony Romo is participating fully in training camp--and owner Jerry Jones has been encouraged by what he’s seen out of his franchise quarterback thus far.

    I like what he’s doing,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He’s benefiting not only from on the field but off the field stuff. A lot of the stuff you’re seeing out there is him and some of his things. I sit in on most of the after-practice offensive meetings, and I know it’s going good from their perspective in those meetings. I’m not seeing any differences. Maybe I see playing into shape, he looks a little more comfortable out there when he started.”

    Media types were quick to notice that Romo wasn’t throwing deep very often through the first week of camp. But Jones believes that’s a product of a shift in offensive philosophy--a greater emphasis on the tight end position--more than a sense of concern for Romo’s health.

    “It could be what you are seeing on offense too, with some of your stuff that you are benefiting from with your tight end emphasis,” Jones said. “That really is it as much as any limitation on what he is doing.”
