Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is confident Tony Romo will bounce back from his injury-plagued 2015.
In fact Witten, who is not normally much on talking big, said recently that he “knows” his friend and quarterback will bounce back in 2016, after a 2015 that saw him limited to four games by a pair of collarbone fractures—one in Week 2, and one on Thanksgiving Day.
“I think anytime there’s an injury like that and you miss a long time, he’s as motivated as anybody I’ve been around in that situation,” Witten said, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “He’s working hard and continuing to push himself to be a better player.
“I know he’s going to come back. I don’t just say it to believe it. I know he’ll be back leading the charge for us because he’s worked really hard to get himself in position to be back. He does it every year, that process. He stays true to it and with the competitor the way he is, I think we all are excited to see him.”
Romo turned 36 last month. Also last month, the Cowboys selected a quarterback (Dak Prescott) in the draft for the first time since 2009, when they selected Stephen McGee.
