Jerry Jones: Tony Romo cleared to practice


When the Cowboys show up for training camp this weekend, they’ll have their quarterback back with them.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Thursday  that Tony Romo has been cleared to begin practice when the Cowboys open camp Sunday.

“He feels good. He looks good,” Jones said, via ESPNDallas. “He’s uniquely out running mountains right now in the West, so he’s getting himself physically in shape.

“He’s never thrown a lot in the offseason. This is a time where he rests his arm. I’m confident his weight is right and feel he’ll be in shape and let it go.”


Romo had surgery to remove a cyst in his back in April, which kept him off the field for most of the offseason. He did some light throwing in June, but has otherwise watched backup Kyle Orton take all the work.

Once he’s back, his next challenge will be learning the ways of a new play-caller, as Bill Callahan takes that duty from coach Jason Garrett, marking the first time since 2007 Romo’s had someone else in his ear.

    I forgot. Where did Jerruh go to med school?

    I hope he does play. It will keep Dallas out of the playoffs while another season of excuses wears on.

    It’s easy to be critical of Romo’s play at times in the past, however he has displayed toughness when it comes to playing through injuries. Got give him credit there.

    The cowboys would do better with orten.

  14. maninbrown says: Jul 18, 2013 8:36 PM

    Well it’s a good thing Jerry gave him that bs, I mean Well deserved contract extension. A disappointing 8-8 this year. All Romo’s fault

    “He’s uniquely out running mountains right now in the West, so he’s getting himself physically in shape.

    Uniquely?…He must be the only person running in mountains, who knew.

    Also clear as an overrated QB, possibly the greatest overrated QB in the history of the NFL!

    “He’s uniquely out running mountains right now ”

    It’s always impressive when someone is speaking publicly and uses a word that makes absolutely no sense.

    What a tool!

  18. officialgame says: Jul 18, 2013 10:12 PM

    Ain’t no mountain high enough to keep Tony from saving his worst for last.

  19. giantsfan64 says: Jul 18, 2013 10:33 PM

    As a Giants fan, now I’m real frightened that Romo is back 😝

  20. thefiesty1 says: Jul 18, 2013 10:34 PM

    Will it really matter if he practices? I think not.

  21. nkmho says: Jul 18, 2013 11:17 PM

    Great news!

    – The rest of the NFC East

  22. blackcatnfl says: Jul 19, 2013 12:45 AM

    Jerry laid down the law this year: I’m paying you $100 million dollars, I expect you to practice!

  23. donth8thehorns says: Jul 19, 2013 2:57 AM

    I would take Romo over all but Rodgers, Bree’s, Brady, manning(s), luck, and it’s a toss up with Wilson!

  24. seabreezes51 says: Jul 19, 2013 3:49 AM

    Tony is out running the mountains….. Made me think of Jerry as Wily Coyote

  25. crownofthehelmet says: Jul 19, 2013 8:41 AM

    Section 1, Paragraph 6 of Romo’s new contract:

    “Mr. Jones will now assume all responsibilities related to public communication of said QB.”

  26. mrkimharper says: Jul 19, 2013 6:09 PM

    Cowboy will be no less than 13-3 this year.
