Romo “probably unlikely” for mandatory minicamp

Romo AP

It’s fitting we suppose, that in the first offseason during which Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo put away the golf clubs to focus on football, he still isn’t able to focus on football.

Or at a minimum he isn’t able to practice.

Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Romo, the team’s new $100 million man, is “probably unlikely” for next week’s mandatory minicamp after surgery to remove a benign cyst from his back.

“We’re probably going to be real conservative there, and it’s probably unlikely,” Jones said, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.  “I know I said probably unlikely, but it’s still probably unlikely that he’ll be in minicamp.”

Romo previously had said there’s a “good chance” he’ll be available for minicamp.  As best we can tell, it’s probably likely that “good chance” is higher on the certainty scale than “probably unlikely.”

Confusion has become par for the course with the Cowboys this offseason, featuring plenty of inconsistencies and ambiguities on topics like who’ll call the plays and whether Romo will be doing more than whatever it is that he has done in the past.

    I most enjoy the Cowboys when I’m watching them lose games, but this is entertaining too.

    Jessica Simpson was the first benign cyst removed off his back

    Does he sleep in a crib?

    Lemme guess, Romo named the benign cyst lil’ j.jones.

    If it is mandatory Romo should be there. I don’t know the English Dept at Western Illinois, but “mandatory” means you don’t have much of a choice.

    Especially after cashing a $100 million check.

    Good for Romo, he is far better QB then Flacco.

  7. mazblast says: Jun 4, 2013 11:03 PM

    No, GenXJay. Romo’s cyst was benign, JJ is either malignant or just off-the-wall.

    The “confusion” just seems like enough chum for you to throw in the water to get the dolts all frothed up. Protect your investment. Its not like he’s a rookie and it seems smart to err on the side of caution when a win isn’t on the line.

    It isn’t like one of your writers broke his crayon and you’re leaving him alone for the midnight shift. Or is it….

    “Confusion has become par for the course with the Cowboys this offseason, featuring plenty of inconsistencies and ambiguities on topics like who’ll call the plays and whether Romo will be doing more than whatever it is that he has done in the past.”

    Sorry this is my third comment to this affect today but here goes: Why do you media types assume that there is confusion, inconsistencies and ambiguities within the organization simply because they don’t answer questions that you think you are entitled to answers for on demand? You have no idea what’s really going through the heads of the people running the Cowboys and it comes across as both arrogant and childish for you to assume that you do and then pout when they don’t give you exact answers to your questions. In short I guarantee that they know way more than they’re letting on. Maybe answering your questions just isn’t all that important to them. I can’t imagine why it would be.

    First of all a benign cyst removal is so minor that they only apply a local anaesthetic and stitch it closed…recovery time of about 4 or 5 days at the most. Unless it’s the size of his head he should be out there. Also, there’s no way this thing popped up over night so why did he wait to get it taken care of until “mandatory mini camps.” I guess a $100 million brings out his inner hero..aka Favre.

    Its is probably unlikely that Jerruh has more than two synapses firing anytime he opens his yap.

    BTW, what does Bill Callahan say about Romo being at “mandatory” mini-camp?

  16. skinsfan91 says: Jun 5, 2013 12:40 AM

    People hate on RGIII for being a dedicated, confident, young man. Imagine if he did half the crap Tony Romo has done with such a skimpy resume, he’d be attacked by rednecks carrying pitchforks.

  17. barbeaux says: Jun 5, 2013 12:54 AM

    Would Peyton be there?

  18. catfishcrusader says: Jun 5, 2013 1:57 AM

    I like that you can tell what non-news news columns Mike Florio writes by their headlines.

    ————————————–
    How so?!?! I’m SOOOO interested in how the Cowboy’s band wagon rationalizes Romo’s new 100 mil contract!

    Flacco is an average QB but at least he doesn’t drop the ball over and over again under pressure!

  20. kingjeremi84 says: Jun 5, 2013 5:57 AM

    Hell be there.he just won’t beable to participate. Go cowboys.haters can come out now I’m done

    Sharpening his Junior G-M skills

  22. pencilmonkeymagic says: Jun 5, 2013 8:42 AM

    Romo’s “probably unlikely” for the playoffs, too.

  23. ermur22 says: Jun 5, 2013 9:36 AM

    And Flacco WINS Superbowls!!!!

  24. tvjules says: Jun 5, 2013 9:37 AM

    Shouldn’t Garrett be the one announcing this?

  25. romo4life says: Jun 5, 2013 9:57 AM

    Keep hating…it’s going to make his success this year that much sweeter.

  26. chuckleberry1974 says: Jun 5, 2013 10:12 AM

    Romo went to Eastern Illinois, Mr. English class.

  27. steelerben says: Jun 5, 2013 10:30 AM

    Jerry Jones Goals for the Off Season:

    – Neuter Head Coach – check
    – Over Pay QB – check
    – Reach with First Round Draft Pick – check
    – Publicly Complain About Overpaid QB’s Work Ethic – check
    – Obfuscate Play Caller So Noone Knows it is Me – check
    – Accidentally Reveal Draft Board – check

    Looks like the Cowboys are batting a thousand this off season.

    THANK YOU FOR SAYING IT ALL THE MEDIA IS THE JOKE!

    God forbid that he gets a hangnail or a paper cut. They are paying 100M for “this”??? You should have held back half of that Jerry, and gotten yourself a really good psychiatrist.

  30. bluntsmokinskinsfan says: Jun 5, 2013 7:44 PM

    It’s ok. He can practice throwing interceptions on his own time. Actually, he’s got that down pretty good already.

  31. pdidit09 says: Jun 6, 2013 1:32 PM

    My Boy Romo is going to light it up this year. Will it be to Witten, Escobar, Williams, DEZ, Austin, Harris, Beasley, Armstrong, etc. no it will be Dunbar split the blocks and gonnnne. Murray/Randle in a two back set, and boy, too too many weapons. I love you, get healthy, this is your “Elite” quarterbacking year!
