There’s been no news about Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s recovery from surgery to remove a cyst in his back for a while and it looks like a situation where no news is good news.
The last we heard was that Romo was making some throws as the Cowboys wound down minicamp last month and the team was feeling good about his chances of making a total recovery in time for camp. Nothing appears to have changed since the calendar flipped to July.
Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Romo remains on track to open up camp with his teammates when it opens on July 20. Per Werder, Romo has been “rehabbing daily and throwing regularly” to ensure he’s able to make it onto the field right away.
The big story about the Cowboys offense this offseason other than Romo’s surgery and contract extension has been the switch in play callers from head coach Jason Garrett to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. While it was covered as a move of massive importance, it’s unclear how much impact that change will have but at least it doesn’t seem like the Cowboys will have to worry about their quarterback’s health while figuring out how everything will work on offense this season.
