Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be getting minor back surgery and will be out for the rest of spring. He is getting what’s being called “minor” surgery to remove a cyst and the team expects him to be back by the start of training camp.
This means that Romo will miss all of the team’s organized activities, but he feels this is a smart decision:
“If this was the regular season and I had to play next week, I could,” Romo told The Dallas Morning News on Monday. “This is just about being smart.
“That’s why I did it now. This will have no effect on training camp. No way will it have an impact. And I still think there’s a good chance I’m on the field for mini-camp.’
“It was something I felt like was nagging me just enough I wanted to make sure to get it done now. I wanted to take care of it earlier rather than later.”
Romo signed a controversial six-year $108 million contract and owner/manager Jerry Jones says that Romo will get optimal playing time in the coming season.
I agree with Romo that it is smart to have this surgery now. While I don’t think any surgery can be considered “minor”, in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal. Cowboys fans and even some non-fans expect Romo to step his game up.
If this back procedure can do, then so be it.
