Jerry Jones: Tomy Romo is doing well

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is feeling optimistic about his starting quarterback’s fitness, according to ProFootballTalk. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.

Tomy Romo had back surgery on December 27, for the second time in two offseasons. He is expected to need another three to four months to recover fully, and Jones is feeling confident that the quarterback will be available for training camp.

“I talk to Tony frequently, and so he’s feeling much better,” Jones toldd Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “As far as how he’s feeling, and frankly how he’s responding, is very good.”

“I know that they don’t have any set schedule, but certainly we do expect him to get some work in before we start training camp.”

Two back operations is not what the Cowboys will be wanting for Romo, after handing him that massive contract extension last season, but for now all they can do is wait for the 33-year old to heal up and get back onto the field.

    I predict that Orton will be the key to Dallas’ win-loss record in the 2014 season. Romo won’t make the season, maybe not even the pre-season, without suffering a serious or possibly crippling injury. You heard it here first!
