NDSU QB Carson Wentz On The Possibility Of Sitting Behind A Veteran Like Tony Romo
Tony Romo is having no issues throwing a football less than six weeks after undergoing shoulder surgery.
Romo spoke with reporters Saturday at an All Pro Dad event at AT&T Stadium, saying: “I’ve been throwing fully here for a good week-and-a-half, two weeks. It’s been good. Everything is going great.”
Romo, who turns 36 next week, had shoulder surgery on March 8 in hopes of preventing collarbone issues going forward. Romo started only four games last season, fracturing his left collarbone twice during the season.
The procedure Romo underwent is referred to as a “Mumford procedure,” in which part of his distal clavicle was shaved off or removed to reduce stress. He considered having a plate inserted, but the Mumford route is what he and his doctors decided upon.
Based on his comments, Romo seems optimistic about where he is in his recovery and mentioned he has even been working with receiver Dez Bryant this offseason.
“We’ve gotten out there,” Romo said. “It’s part of the offseason. You’re always getting better.”
The Cowboys will begin their offseason program Monday when players report for strength and conditioning work. Organized team activities will get underway on May 24 with minicamp in June and training camp in July.
Romo is ready for the offseason to officially get underway, although the Cowboys have had good turnouts in the meantime.
“A lot of guys are wanting to get in and get after it,” Romo said. “I think that’s a great sign. I’m all for seeing all the guys in there every day.”
