Quarterback Tony Romo was significantly limited throughout offseason work for the Dallas Cowboys as he recovered from surgery to remove a cyst in his back.
Romo has been cleared to practice as the Cowboys report for the start of training camp on Saturday in Oxnard, Calif. However, the Cowboys intend to ease Romo back into full workouts and monitor his reps as camp gets underway.
According to Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys plan to manage the workload Romo sees during practices. Head coach Jason Garrett said Romo isn’t going to be limited to a specific number of throws but they will communicate with Romo to make sure he isn’t feeling fatigued and the quality of his throws aren’t falling off.
“One of the challenges for Tony, when you have a back injury, is it’s hard for you to actually to stay in the kind of shape you want to be in,” Garrett said. “…He looks great. He looks lean to me. We do have to monitor his throwing. I don’t think it’ll be significant.”
