Jerry: Romo Feeling Good After Surgery

Tony Romo underwent back surgery a week ago to repair a herniated disk



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is out of surgery and doing just fine, according to owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

    In an appearance on 105.3-FM The Fan in Dallas, Jones continued to express confidence that the injury would be a non-issue going forward. He said last week, shortly after Romo suffered the injury in the Week 17 loss to the Eagles, that he expected the signal caller to be back in time for the offseason conditioning program.

    He got the kind of immediate relief that you would want him to get,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “And as I’ve said, the nature of his injury and the nature of what it took to repair it, if you will, was not dramatic. It was not something that would give you concern on a going forward basis, so all thumbs are up on Tony.”

    This latest procedure was the second performed on Romo’s back in the last eight months. After the first, a procedure to remove a non-cancerous cyst, he bounced back nicely, throwing for 3,828 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 15 games in 2013.
