Last offseason, the Cowboys never got much of a look at Tony Romo because of back surgery, and insisted everything was fine.
The same song is being sung now, after his procedure on Dec. 27 which kept him from playing in the season-deciding finale against the Eagles.
“I talk to Tony frequently, and so he’s feeling much better,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, via Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “As far as how he’s feeling, and frankly how he’s responding, is very good.”
Romo is expected to need three to four months to recover, and Jones was optimistic that would have him back on the field before training camp.
“I know that they don’t have any set schedule,” Jones said. “But certainly we do expect him to get some work in before we start training camp.”
While there’s nothing but time for Romo to get well now, the condition of his back continues to be a big issue for the Cowboys, after they staked themselves to the 33-year-old with last year’s contract extension.
