One of the quieter storylines this offseason concerns Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and his bout with back surgery. It has been overlooked as a minor story because, well, it’s a minor story.
Still, all reports indicate that Romo is progressing nicely from the operation and is set to be ready for training camp. He is already back throwing the ball without issue. ESPN’s Ed Werder provided the update on Twitter:
I'm told Cowboys expect Tony Romo to be ready for start of training camp. He's been rehabbing daily and throwing regularly #cowboys

The Spin: Clearly this is nothing but good news for Dallas, especially after making Romo a $100 million investment. Over the years he has done an outstanding job of staying healthy and we doubt that trend will stop for a minor back operation.
Romo was always expected to be back on time for training camp, but it is nice to hear an update on his status. Now he and the Cowboys can start working on putting together a playoff run. If Romo’s lucky, the shaky offensive line will continue to hold up so that he does not need any more operations.
