Tony Romo claims he's ready for regular season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo believes he's ready to roll into the regular season. He told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that there is nothing he must test or do in his preseason fnale Saturday in Miami that will make a difference.

The Cowboys open their season on Sept. 7 against San Francisco.

"More than anything, you just want to execute as an offense and go out and do well," Romo said in regard to the exhibition clash. "We gauge a lot sometimes off of two drives. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's a little silly because games you're going to have 10-to-11 [drives]."

Romo added that he has felt no physical limitations after undergoing offseason back surgery.


Two key Cowboys back in action Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Both quarterback Tony Romo was back in pads and linebacker Rolando McClain returned to Cowboys practice Thursday after missing the Wednesday session. Romo is set to play Saturday against Miami in the third exhibition game. McClain had been dealing with muscle cramps.

"He has some things that have sidetracked him here for a day or two," Jason Garrett told the Dallas News about McClain. "But obviously, being out at practice playing play after play, day after day matters."


Cowboys still being cautious with Tony Romo


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Wednesday as the team stays cautious with him, reports the Dallas Morning News. The team is sticking to its plan of not having Romo practice more than two consecutive days.

Romo, coming off back surgery, will play in the club's third preseason game Saturday at Miami.


Tony Romo's back passes first test


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he wasn't thinking about his surgically-repaired back during his preseason debut against the Ravens. It was his first game action since last December.

"I think when you play, if you’re thinking about those things, you’re doing your team a disservice," Romo told the Dallas Morning News. "I got a lot of other things that I have to do to make sure that we’re running the offense smoothly and efficiently and I think that’s what needs to be in your brain.

"If you’re not healthy, you shouldn’t play."

Romo said his back felt good and that he will "continue to get stronger." He's unsure how much he'll play Saturday in the third preseason game against Miami. Against Baltimore, Romo was on the field for the first 14 offensive plays.


Tony Romo tosses touchdown in preseason debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made his preseason debut Saturday, going 4 for 5 with 80 yards and a touchdown in his team's game against the Ravens.

Romo lost a fumble on the first drive of the game that was returned for a touchdown, but he bounced back with a nice drive, capping it with a 31-yard strike to Dez Bryant. Romo has been slow to take on a full workload after undergoing back surgery in December. He should see more extensive work in next week's game before sitting out the preseason finale.

Tony Romo could play a couple series Saturday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will make his preseason debut Saturday against the Ravens, owner Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan. "I don't see him in there for a half or anything like that," Jones said, "but I do think he can take a couple of series."

Coming back from December back surgery, Romo reportedly had a good weekend of practice.


Tony Romo won't play in preseason opener or finale


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo won't play Thursday at San Diego in the preseason opener, or in the preseason finale Aug. 28 against Denver, reports the Dallas Morning News. Romo is coming off back surgery and the team is managing his reps.

He's expected to get limited work in Sunday's scrimmage. Team officials say Romo is fine and that they're just being cautious, the paper said.


Tony Romo unsure if he'll play in preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will play during the preseason at some point, but it might not be in the Aug. 7 opener against San Diego. He's seven months removed from back surgery.

"I want to make sure it’s progressing and continuing to go forward," Romo told the Dallas Morning News. :They’re going to try and have me sit out more than I want to. But that’s also because they’re smart and they know what they’re doing."

Romo practiced Wednesday and declared himself 100 percent, the paper said. The team has held him out of multiple practices.

"You just want to take every rep and do everything," Romo said. "And you feel good. And you’re like, ‘I feel good. Let’s go.’ But at the same time you feel good until you don’t. There’s not a lot of history doing this over and over and over again. It’s a little different than most injuries because we don’t have 10 other guys who have gone through this in the last three years. We’ve just kind of got to be real smart. We’ve just got to be smart with it."


Jerry Jones: Tony Romo is '100 percent' healthy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Although the Cowboys held Tony Romo out of Tuesday's practice, owner Jerry Jones said the team is just being smart with the quarterback's comeback from back surgery.

"He is 100 percent. He's 100 percent," Jones told reporters, per NFL.com. "He's just being real smart and sensitive about having come off the back surgery. He's certainly not losing any ground from the standpoint of opening up against San Francisco (in Week 1)."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) After Cowboys officials said quarterback Tony Romo would practice Tuesday, they changed course and held him out, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Coach Jason Garrett said Romo is fine.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Tony Romo has 'good velocity'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, in his first contact practice Saturday since undergoing back surgery, had "good velocity" and "good accuracy" on his throws, quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson told the Dallas Morning News.

"I thought he looked good," Wilson said. "He looked fresh. It wasn't bothering him at all."

Romo didn't throw a lot of deep balls and "was never really in a position where he had to torque or twist his back to get off a throw," the paper noted.


Tony Romo says best football still in front of him


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who turned 34 in April and is coming off his second back surgery in less than a year, said he's just now starting to play the best football of his career, reports ESPN.

"I feel personally like I've just started to come into the player that wanted to be six, seven years ago," Romo said. "I think -- and I've said it before -- but I think over the course of the next four or five years, you'll see the best version of me that I've had throughout my career. That's for a lot of different reasons. But I really believe that, and I believe that will show as we go forward. So I'm excited about that. As my body continues to get healthier and healthier, it's going to be better."

Romo said he will spend three to four hours a day doing rehab, maintenance or strengthening exercises for his back. He said there is no pain in it.

"They'll definitely get sick and tired of me over here in the training room and just all the areas around the facility here because you're going to want to get inflammation and all that stuff," Romo said. "If anyone's ever had surgery, you have to do all those things. A back, any time you've ever had a back, the smart people change the routine going forward. They make sure that they commit to a routine that's going to give them the best chance to be strong in all the other areas you need to be."


Tony Romo to be full-go in practice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to be a full participant during Thursday’s first practice of training camp, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Romo was limited during all of mini camp and organized team activities after having back surgery in December.

"I think his recovery has been outstanding," coach Jason Garrett said. "He's been diligent in his rehab. He's made great strides. I thought we did a good job as an organization being disciplined throughout the offseason making what he does in practice fairly consistent and not allowing him to get into competitive situations. We worked through that and it gave him another month to stay out of that. He has been working hard on his conditioning, on his throwing and we do anticipate him being ready to go for all aspects."

Romo will be evaluated on a daily basis. If he struggles with the workload, the amount of snaps he takes could be dialed back.

"He has had no issues," Garrett said, "no obstacles holding him back."


Tony Romo set up for huge season


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has the chance for a monster season in 2014. His back is healthy, the receiving corps is exceptional, the defense is bad and the playcalling should be in his favor.

Most Fantasy owners are leery of Romo because of his back and a track record of letting people down. Forget about that. The Cowboys will have trouble stopping people on defense, and the addition of new playcaller Scott Linehan will help Romo shine.

I love Romo as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback, and he is a breakout candidate even at this stage of his career. For more on why, check out my column here.


Tony Romo ready to go for training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to be ready for the start of training camp after back surgery last year, reports the Dallas Morning News.

And this year, compared to last season when he was also coming off a back procedure, he expects to be in better shape.

"Miles ahead of last year," Romo said of his conditioning now compared to last June. "I don't think they're comparable. I think last year I was just starting around this point so this year I've had whatever months to kind of get myself into feeling like I can go. Now it’s going to be more perfecting as opposed to just trying to hammer everything out in four weeks, three weeks."


Frederick hopes to help Tony Romo


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) Cowboys center Travis Frederick is hoping to make things easier for quarterback Tony Romo this season, reports ESPN.

Part of Romo's responsibility is setting the protections with calling out the middle linebacker. The offensive line follows the assignment. If Frederick can take that responsibility away from Romo, then Romo can worry more about the coverage. 

"I'm going to try and do as much as I can to take as much as I can off Tony that he was doing before for the offensive line," Frederick said. 'Not necessarily because I was a rookie or this or that, but because, if I can see it better, that's going to take one thing off his plate and that's going to help the team as a whole."


Tony Romo expects to be fine for training camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jerry Jones expects Tony Romo cleared for camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Tony Romo close to 100 percent


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who had a discectomy last December in his back and has been limited in his offseason work, said he expects to be 100 percent in "two weeks," reports ESPN.

He should be a full participant in all practices when training camp begins.


Tony Romo will remain limited in practice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Even though Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said his back is feeling better, he will remain limited during the three-day minicamp next week, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that Romo won't do much next week.

"We'll take him day-by-day like we do with all the other guys," Garrett said, "but I don't see it changing dramatically."

On Monday, Romo said he could play in a game right now if needed, but is still not 100 percent recovered from his December back surgery to repair a herniated disc.


Tony Romo should be 100 percent for start of training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he'll be 100 percent for the start of training camp, reports the Dallas Morning News. He also said he could play in a game right now if needed.

Romo, who had back surgery to repair a herniated disk in December, has been limited during organized team activities.

"I don't think it’s slow anymore," Romo said. "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. But now I'm to a point where I can push it and kind of go, and I feel like at this point I could play in a game if I had to. Obviously you wouldn't want to right yet, just to let it completely scar up and heal in all the areas that you want. In the next couple weeks I think I'll be 100 percent."

During OTAs the last two weeks, Romo has been throwing during the individual position drills.

"Your ultimate goal is to be 100 percent on Day 1 of training camp so you don't miss any time," Romo said. "That’s what, starting this process, you were thinking. Now I feel good enough that I'm taking reps and doing things out there, but at the same token you want to be smart and not do anything to set it back, per se. But I don't envision anything like that happening at this point."


Tony Romo does limited work in OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) participated in some individual drills at OTAs, reports the Dallas Morning News. He threw to receivers, in some cases at full velocity, but did not take part in any conditioning drills with sudden movements, the report said.


Tony Romo 'getting close' to returning


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Wednesday that he's "getting close" to practicing with the team again following a discectomy late last year and the ensuing rehab. ESPN reports Romo has taken it slowly in his recovery and has been limited in on-field work with coaches the last two weeks. He expects to do more next week. 

"We're just going to be smart during the OTAs and have a little bit of a pitch count but we're going to go out there each day and try to do all that we can," Romo said. "The guys are working hard and doing great and I think we're going to be ready. ... A lot of it's going to be determined by how good I feel."
