Reports: Romo Ahead of Schedule

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is coming off offseason back surgery



    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is bouncing back quite nicely from his second back surgery in the span of just about eight months, apparently.

    Romo was forced out of the team’s win-and-in game in Week 17 of last year when it was revealed that he had a ruptured disk in his back. But he’s actually ahead of schedule, according to Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones.

    He is ahead of expectations,” Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. "He is ahead of where we expected him to be.”

    Jones added that Romo hasn’t actually thrown passes yet, but he is doing throwing motions.

    The Cowboys’ offseason conditioning program begins on April 21.
