Romo Waiting to Work With Rookies

Tony Romo is missing the team's first OTA after undergoing a procedure to remove a cyst from his back



    Sidelined for the Cowboys first organized team activities of the season after undergoing a procedure to remove a cyst from his back, quarterback Tony Romo admits that he’s somewhat disappointed that he won’t be able to get to work with the team’s rookies. But Romo’s confident that when he does get back on the field, he’ll be able to make up for lost time.

    “I think sometimes timing. But at the same time, I’m going to wear that out with them, too,” Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m sure they’ll want to get out of here a little bit in June and July, but I’ll probably force the hand a little bit to keep them around and it’ll be a good thing for us. It’ll be just a bonus time-wise.”

    While not taking snaps, Romo said he has been talking to rookies Gavin Escobar, a tight end out of San Diego State, and former Baylor receiver Terrance Williams.

    “You talk to [Williams] about little things sometimes,” Romo said. “I think there are certain things Terrance does very well. I think there’s some things he’ll continue to work on and get better with it that can help him as a player and help us as a team. Terrance has a good head on his shoulders. He wants to work hard, so I think he’s going to continue to get better and better.”
