Tony Romo Cleared To Practice At Camp

The Dallas Cowboys’ medical staff has cleared quarterback Tony Romo to begin practicing when training camp starts on Sunday, according to a source.

Romo underwent minor surgery to have a non-cancerous cyst removed from his back in April. The surgery prevented Romo from participating in offseason workouts other than some light throwing in walk-through practices.

Romo and team officials have said he wasn’t practicing as more of a precaution.

“I feel a lot better,” Romo said in May when asked about the surgery. “It was something that was there a little bit, kind of annoying. I’d rather feel 100 percent here. Hopefully I’ll be back for minicamp and be ready to go, but we’re just being smart now for the next couple of weeks.”
