Cowboys' Tony Romo expected to be a full participant as training camp opens

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony is coming off of back surgery for the second offseason in a row. The Cowboys are cautious about their franchise player’s long term health and limited him during all of mini camp and organized team activities.

As training camp begins, Romo will be a full participant during Thursday’s first practice.

“I think his recovery has been outstanding,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s been diligent in his rehab. He’s made great strides.

“I thought we did a good job as an organization being disciplined throughout the off-season making what he does in practice fairly consistent and not allowing him to get into competitive situations. We worked through that and it gave him another month to stay out of that.

“He has been working hard on his conditioning, on his throwing and we do anticipate him being ready to go for all aspects.”

The Cowboys felt comfortable and confident with Kyle Orton as their back up. After releasing Orton they’re left with former first-round pick Brandon Weeden.

Romo will be evaluated on a daily basis and if the work load appears to be too much, the Cowboys will tone it back but Garrett said Romo has “had no issues” and “no obstacles holding him back.”
