Cowboys' Tony Romo will be ready by training camp according to VP


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed the season finale with a back injury that required surgery, the second back operation he has had in two years. Despite that, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones says Romo will be ready for training camp and definitely for the first week of the season.

“Yes he will and he’s actually progressing great,” said Jones, via ESPN.com. “He’s on schedule if not ahead of schedule. He’s throwing the ball around, we not only think he’ll be ready for opening week, he’ll start up at training camp and be ready to go.

“He’s obviously a tremendous competitor, and in our mind he kept us in all season long with a defense that was depleted with injuries, with a chance to win the NFC East in the last game of the year. And if he had played in that game, that game might have gone in a different direction.”
