Tony Romo doing well in rehab, could advance to next stage soon


Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had back surgery to deal with a herniated disk in late December, forcing him to miss the regular season finale against the Eagles and setting him up for rehab in the offseason to get himself ready for the 2014 season.

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports that the rehab has been going well enough that Romo should be able to progress to the next stage in a couple of weeks. Romo has been doing core and stabilization exercises since having the surgery in order to increase both flexibility and strength in his back.

The next stage would include low impact exercise that will include more movement than the work that Romo’s been doing over the last month or so.

All of that’s right in line with the general timetable established at the time of Romo’s surgery and with owner Jerry Jones saying in January that Romo was feeling much better. Jones also said that he expects Romo to work during OTAs later in the offseason, although there’s not much reason for the Cowboys to push the rehab if it would put Romo at any increased risk of missing time during training camp.

    Advancing to the next stage eh? He will probably choke.

    He wants to make sure he’s ready for another season of 8-8 football.

    He needs to do brain exercises because he has the football IQ of a goat – and we know he excels at being the goat of agonizing losses

    Full recovery from back surgery is so problematic in so many cases… and given his injury history (disclosed and undisclosed), I don’t think Romo’s every going to be 100% again.

    I hope he recovers 100%. He is so much fun to watch scrambling around before he throws the inevitable interception! He hasn’t learned to throw the ball into the forth row of seats!!!!

    Romo will come back 100%, the Cowboys WILL WIN the NFC East next season with Romo behind center. Romo will win Comeback Player of the year. The Cowboys will be the surprise team next year, taking the Cowboys winning Super Bowl 49. You heard it 1st, mark my words. Romo Super Bowl MAP. How about them Cowboys!! Super Bowl Bound Baby!!!
