Romo (collarbone) is expected to be a full participant when the Cowboys start OTAs in late May, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo has reportedly recovered from his March 8 surgery a bit faster than expected, allowing him to take part in offseason workouts the past couple weeks. Meanwhile, Dez Bryant (foot) may not be ready for OTAs or June minicamp, but there's been no indication that he's behind schedule. Assuming Bryant avoids any major setbacks, Romo will have an excellent supporting cast in what figures to be a balanced Dallas offense.

Romo said Saturday that his rehab from collarbone surgery continues to go well and that he's been able to fully participate in his throwing program for over a week, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "It's been going great [during unofficial team workouts] for the last two, three weeks - just getting them going and being able to go full speed and all that stuff. It's been great," Romo said. "I can throw fully. I've been throwing fully here for a good week and a half, two weeks. It's been good."

EDGE Analysis

It's certainly encouraging that Romo's recovery has gone without a hitch so far, but there will still be a lot of question marks around the 36-year-old in 2016 after he played in just four games last season due to two collarbone fractures, and hasn't made it through a full 16-game schedule unscathed since 2012. If he's able to stay healthy the Cowboys have the talent around him to make Romo a very productive fantasy QB, but at this point that remains a very large 'if'.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Romo is feeling "excellent" in his recovery from surgery on his left collarbone on March 8, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Exactly two weeks removed from the procedure, Romo has 4-6 weeks of rehabilitation still on the ledger, but there appears to be little worry about the quarterback missing OTAs, which start in mid-May.

Romo is undergoing surgery on his left collarbone Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo has opted for the Mumford procedure, which includes shaving the distal clavicle and was the preferred option of the two, as it reduces long-term stress on the collarbone. Knowing that, a recent CT scan must have revealed that he experienced a suitable amount of bone growth in his clavicle. Once the surgery is complete, his rehab is expected to encompass 6-to-8 weeks, meaning he has a great opportunity to participate in all OTAs once they kick off in May.

Romo (collarbone) will undergo surgery next week to address a fracture in his collarbone, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo will have a couple of options for the surgery, one being the attachment of a plate to the collarbone in an effort to prevent the injury from recurring. The other option is to shave down part of the bone where it meets the shoulder in what's known as a Mumford procedure. The quarterback has not yet stated which path he'll take, though he noted last week that he's leaning toward the former procedure. Either way, he's expected to face a recovery timetable of six-to-eight weeks, which should allow him to be medically cleared for OTA's in May.

Romo is slated for a CT scan this coming week, which will help determine whether or not the QB will elect to undergo a procedure to insert a plate to help strengthen his collarbone, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point, Romo is thought to be leaning toward having the procedure done on his left collarbone, though per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, such a call hinges on the QB's CT scan ensuring that the bone is fully healed. If he does undergo the procedure, Romo believes that he'd be ready for the Cowboys' OTAs and minicamp, given a recovery time that is typically in the 6-8 week range. Meanwhile, ESPN.com relays Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones' continued commitment to Romo as his franchise QB. "What is the one unequivocal fact that you can count on relative to the preparation of this draft and on draft day is that I'm planning on Romo being the quarterback for the next four or five years," Jones noted with reference to the team's approach is advance of April's selection process.

Romo plans to undergo surgery on his left clavicle in two weeks Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The procedure is expected to leave Romo with a 6-8 week recovery time. With the early March surgery date, Romo should be ready to go by late April or early May, meaning he should be ready in time for OTAs and training camp. The only question for Romo has been what kind of treatment he would undergo for the clavicle injury this offseason and when, and that detail has finally been nailed down.

Romo (collarbone) is leaning toward undergoing a Mumford procedure on his left clavicle, The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romo said back in January that he'd likely have the surgery, with a final decision coming in late February or early March. The Mumford procedure would shave off a portion of his distal clavicle, as opposed to another surgical option that would attach a plate over the area. Both procedures have an expected recovery period of six-to-eight weeks, which means Romo still has some time to make a decision. Either way, the Cowboys hope to have him ready for OTAs in May.

Romo will be evaluated in late February or early March to determine if surgery is necessary on his left collarbone, The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Before undergoing a CT scan last week, Romo fully expected to have surgery at some point in the offseason, but the Cowboys now have some options to ponder. If the team opts for the first one, a set of screws will attach a plate over the collarbone in order to stabilize the area and avoid another fracture. As for the second choice, if the next CT scan reveals a suitable amount of bone growth and regeneration to last week's base line, he may undergo a Mumford procedure, in which part of "the distal clavicle is shaved off or removed." The latter procedure is preferable, as it reduces long-term stress on the collarbone versus the attachment of a plate. No matter which path Romo takes, he'll face a 6-to-8 week recovery, setting him up to take part in the entire offseason program.

Romo expects to undergo surgery on his left collarbone in the offseason, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "We've had exhaustive discussions about it," he said Saturday. "It's going to be good."

EDGE Analysis

Romo has endured a fractured left clavicle on three occasions since the 2010 season, including a pair of instances in the most recent campaign. After an upcoming CT scan to learn whether his shoulder can handle a plate and screws, the subsequent surgery will presumably stabilize the region in order to avoid a similar injury in the future. If the Cowboys opt for the procedure, he'll be facing a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 weeks, which should allow him to participate in OTAs this spring.
