Tony Romo had a procedure this offseason to remove a cyst from his back. Some thought this would cause him to miss the beginning of the Dallas Cowboys training camp, but ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Tony Romo will be present at camp from the start.
I’m told Cowboys expect Tony Romo to be ready for start of training camp. He’s been rehabbing daily and throwing regularly #cowboys

Tony Romo has been remarkably healthy aside from the injury shortened season 2010 season. He had a broken collarbone that year. Aside from that injury he has only missed 3 games since 2006.
The Cowboys, if pressed, have a reliable back up in Kyle Orton and would be ok. There were never any indications that Romo wouldn’t be ready for the season however.
Romo even participated in minicamps and Junes, throwing the ball. The main issue with the cyst was his comfort with shoulder pads on however. The Dallas Cowboys are hoping to have a break out year this season and return to the playoffs. Dallas great, wide receiver Drew Pearson, even picked them to go to the Super Bowl.
