Tony Romo signals his recovery is on track

In multiple interviews with Dallas-Fort Worth media outlets Wednesday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo indicated he was recovering well from December back surgery.

Romo told 105.3 FM “The Fan” in Dallas-Fort Worth that he expected to be back to full strength “within the next month.”

“Hopefully it’s in the next week or two, which is a viable and serious time that it actually could happen in,” Romo told 105.3 FM. “You know, it could be another two or three weeks. We’ll see here. We’ll be smart in OTAs, but at the same point, we’ve got to get to work.”

The Cowboys hold OTAs (organized team activities) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week, with other sessions slated for June 2, June 4-5 and June 9-12. The club’s mandatory minicamp is June 17-19.

Longer term, the 34-year-old Romo signaled Wednesday he believes he can hold up physically in 2014 and beyond.

“There’s no question in my mind: not only am I going to be able to make it through 16 games, I’ll make it through another five years,” Romo told 105.3 FM.

Romo is signed through the 2019 season. Since becoming the Cowboys’ starter during the 2006 season, he has missed 14 games because of injury, 10 of which came in 2010, when he suffered a broken clavicle.

    You can’t ‘will’ your way out of a herniated disk

    Glad to hear. A healthy Romo n a good draft class means the Cowboys should b 3 to 5 games better than the giants who have the most overrated QB in football. If anything, with Mannings ankle injury n with him regressing, it’s the giants who will b looking up at the Skins, Cowboys n the Eagles. The truth is, it’s more the real Manning the turnover machine than him regressing. lOL

    Whew, glad he will be back in time to throw a back breaking interception in week 1.

    Great! He’ll be in prime form to throw a season crushing pick in week 17 against a division rival in no time!

    Another chapter in the Romo-Cowboys May-December romance. We all know what happens in December, now, don’t we?

    Only problem is, ALL members of the Cowboys organization are really good at talking a good game, just not so good at actually playing one.

    Glad to hear this; this is a make or break season in Big D – well for everyone except the World’s Greatest GM…

    The most mediocre franchise in the NFL.

    Great news. Shake the haters off and keep balling, #9.

    Romo has hijacked the Cowboys and won’t allow them to move on. The Skins and Eagles won the East with very young and inexperienced QBs but Jerry Jones and Jason think Romo is our only hope. Time to move on from this loser!

    He will be there for another 2 years maximum. His ridiculously bloated contract assures that.

    Unless he miraculously becomes a different QB and learns how not to fold in pressure situations, he’s out as soon as the salary cap hit allows it.
