Tony Romo has 'good velocity'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, in his first contact practice Saturday since undergoing back surgery, had "good velocity" and "good accuracy" on his throws, quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson told the Dallas Morning News.

"I thought he looked good," Wilson said. "He looked fresh. It wasn't bothering him at all."

Romo didn't throw a lot of deep balls and "was never really in a position where he had to torque or twist his back to get off a throw," the paper noted.

Tony Romo says best football still in front of him
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who turned 34 in April and is coming off his second back surgery in less than a year, said he's just now starting to play the best football of his career, reports ESPN.

"I feel personally like I've just started to come into the player that wanted to be six, seven years ago," Romo said. "I think -- and I've said it before -- but I think over the course of the next four or five years, you'll see the best version of me that I've had throughout my career. That's for a lot of different reasons. But I really believe that, and I believe that will show as we go forward. So I'm excited about that. As my body continues to get healthier and healthier, it's going to be better."

Romo said he will spend three to four hours a day doing rehab, maintenance or strengthening exercises for his back. He said there is no pain in it.

"They'll definitely get sick and tired of me over here in the training room and just all the areas around the facility here because you're going to want to get inflammation and all that stuff," Romo said. "If anyone's ever had surgery, you have to do all those things. A back, any time you've ever had a back, the smart people change the routine going forward. They make sure that they commit to a routine that's going to give them the best chance to be strong in all the other areas you need to be."
