The Cowboys have concerns as their off-season program gets into full swing at Valley Ranch. But, at this point, Tony Romo’s health isn’t one of them.
The quarterback who missed 12 games in 2015 and underwent surgery on his collar bone in March is throwing on schedule and, according to head coach Jason Garrett, will not be limited as the team ramps up toward training camp in late July.
“He hasn’t really had any issues physically,” Garrett told reporters Tuesday. “He’s integrated almost completely back into the off-season program. He’s really made a lot of progress. I think his back is feeling good. His shoulder seems fine. He’s moving around well. He’s really doing very well.”
Romo, who has been throwing for the last month, has the ever-optimistic Jerry Jones even more encouraged than usual.
“There’s absolutely nothing negative that can be said about where he is,” the owner said. “Everything they hoped to accomplish technically from appraisal of surgery has gone well. Everything he’s done regarding his strength, everything regarding what he’s wanted to do, he’s been able to do.”
The surgery on the 36-year-old Romo shaved back part of his collar bone in an attempt to keep him from injuring it yet again.
So far, so good.
