The fact that quarterback Tony Romo has missed two of the Cowboys’ first five training camp workouts is not a sign that the veteran is not 100 percent, this according to owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
Romo, of course, is recovering from a December procedure to repair a herniated disk in his back. At the time, it was his second back surgery in an eight-month span.
“Yes, he’s 100 percent. He’s 100 percent,” Jones told the team’s official website. “We’re just being real smart and sensitive about having come off the back surgery. He’s certainly not losing any ground from the standpoint of opening up against San Francisco.”
Jones did his best to emphasize that the Cowboys were limiting his reps as strictly a precautionary measure, and that he isn’t concerned about Romo’s back at this point.
“No, not at all. I had a brief visit with it,” Jones said. “We feel real good. We’re really pleased with the way he’s practicing and the work he’s getting down, both on and off the field. Nothing in any way would concern me about certainly his back.”
