QB coach says Tony Romo looks “re-energized” after collarbone surgery
It took Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo a little while to determine whether he’d have surgery and what kind of surgery he’d have in hopes of strengthening his left collarbone after breaking it twice during the 2015 season, but he went in for an operation in early March.
That operation came with a 6-8 week timetable for recovery and it was less time than that before Romo declared himself ready to go for offseason work. Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said that work has been going on without any restrictions and that Romo looks refreshed after his long layoff from football.
“He’s looking good,” Wilson said, via the Dallas Morning News. “We had two practices where we’ve been out here on the field with the guys and he’s done everything. He’s throwing, he’s got good velocity on all of his throws, great movement in his legs. He looks like he’s re-energized because he hadn’t played, you know, missed the majority of the season. So he’s real energized and anxious to get going.”
Wilson said that they don’t have Romo on a pitch count during workouts and that it will be the quarterback’s call about whether to back off because of “soreness or anything like that.” Those days may come over the course of the offseason, but there doesn’t appear to be much concern about Romo’s fitness at this point in the calendar.
