You’re surely familiar with ‘pitch counts’ in Major League Baseball, the Dallas Cowboys will take a similar approach with Tony Romo during training camp. Romo had surgery this offseason to remove a cyst that has limited his participation in OTA’s and minicamps. Reporters say they only saw him throw on the last day of offseason practices.
Head coach Jason Garrett said there wouldn’t be a specific number that he’d be kept under, it’d be more about communication on how Romo feels.
From Carlos Mendez of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram:
“It’s more communication – ‘How you feeling?’ – and also, you look at the ball,” head coach Jason Garrett said Saturday in Oxnard, Calif., where the Cowboys are getting ready for their first practice on Sunday. “Does the ball look a little dead or tired? But mostly, it’s communication with him and how he’s feeling. We’ll all get a sense for that.”
“One of the challenges for Tony, when you have a back injury, is it’s hard for you to actually to stay in the kind of shape you want to be in,” Garrett said. “Really proud of how he’s worked since he’s been able to get back and running and doing the things he needs to do. He looks great. He looks lean to me. We do have to monitor his throwing. I don’t think it’ll be significant.”
