Eli Manning isn’t the only NFC East quarterback who thinks he’s recovered enough from surgery to play a game right now if the schedule called for it.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo feels the same way. Romo is making his way back from the back surgery that brought his 2013 season to a premature end and said Monday that he feels like his rehab has progressed to the point that he could push himself to the points needed to get through a game.
“I don’t think it’s slow anymore. I think earlier on, right after surgery, you kind of go through that mode of getting healthy — kind of having to not do too much right away,” Romo said, via the team’s website. “But now I’m to a point where you can push it and kind of go, and I feel like at this point I could play in a game if I had to.”
Romo added that he didn’t think it would be particularly wise to push things to their farthest limit right now, which is fine since the Cowboys don’t have a game of consequence for another three months. Barring a setback, it sounds like Romo should be fine once the calendar does move into September and that Dallas can focus a bit more of their concern on their defense.
