Witten: People Underestimate Romo's Toughness

Tony Romo underwent two back surgeries in an eight-month span last year



    As the Dallas Cowboys wrap up the first week of the offseason conditioning program, tight end Jason Witten remains optimistic about his friend and quarterback Tony Romo. Echoing his own sentiment from earlier this offseason, Witten says he believes Romo will bounce back from back surgery in December--his second in an eight month span--to be better than ever.

    “He looks good,” Witten told Gina Miller of ThatSportsGirl.com this week. “I see him running out there.  It's always good to have him out there.  I think he's gonna be better than ever and I'm excited for this season.”

    Witten went so far as to propose that many fans underestimate Romo’s toughness.

    “He looks great and I'm excited to see where he is," Witten said. “People don't realize the will and kind of toughness he has. I think somewhere it got lost because we were playing Philadelphia but he played most the that game (the Washington game) with the back injury and won the game for us.”
