Tony Romo To Participate in OTAs

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to participate in OTAs this week with the team, per ESPN Dallas. He ended last season with a back injury and had to have surgery, but he is ready to get things going for OTAs. This portion of OTAs is when the team is allowed to lift and run, but the coaching staff and scouts are hands off.

Romo missed a lot of the OTAs last Summer with the injury to his back, but the surgery in the offseason should have cleaned that up and he is ready to jump right in. He is expected to participate in most of the activities with the team. Things sound like they are progressing well with the quarterback.

“It’s going good,” Romo told ESPN last March after watching a Duke basketball game.”We’re getting close now to [returning]. Usually takes three months, it’s just normal kinda roundabout date that they give ya and we’re right on schedule.

“Really ahead in a lot of ways. Just going to be ready to go here in about a month and rehab is going good, no setbacks of any kind. Mine [surgery] was just a normal small version of it, so I should be good to go here shortly.” – ESPN Dallas
