The Dallas Cowboys announced on Friday morning that quarterback Tony Romo underwent back surgery ending his season. With injuries and operations like this late in the season it puts in question when he’ll return next year.

According to Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Romo will be ready to participate in OTAs.

“My expectation is that one of the pluses for having had it done as early as this morning is that it would really contribute to him being able to get right there when it comes time for the team to be in OTAs and do the preparation, the beginning of the preparation for next year,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “The OTAs are what we call the equivalent of our spring practice. So we would anticipate him being right on time there and expect it and we’ll see how it goes.”

For now the Cowboys are focused on beating the Philadelphia Eagles with Kyle Orton under center.
