NFL: Preseason-San Diego Chargers at Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo underwent back surgery to repair a herniated disk prior to the end of the 2013 season. The Dallas Cowboys have maintained that Romo will be ready for OTAs and that thought has not changed.

Romo has going though the early stages of rehabilitation and executive vice president Stephen Jones remains confident that Romo will be ready this spring.

“By the time everything rolls around to OTAs and everything, I think he’ll be participating in it,” Jones said at the NFL scouting combine, via the Dallas Morning News. “Now, he won’t just be crazy about it. We’re not trying to win the Super Bowl with OTAs. But I think he’s on target and feels good. Our trainers and doctors feel good. I think he’ll be fine.”

Romo finished the 2013 season competing 63.9-percent of his passes for 3,828 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
