Tony Romo QB DAL 2 months ago5 Comments

Romo says he feels fully healthy this offseason for the first time since his 2013 back surgery, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports. "Just the ability to have an offseason I haven't had that in a few years," Romo said in an interview with the Cowboys' flagship radio station 105.3 The Fan. "I'm really able to push it a little bit right now, which has been exciting with the legs, the upper body and some of the stuff I haven't been able to do for two, two and a half, three years."

A dominant offensive line and a career season from DeMarco Murray helped Romo to his own career-best 69.9% completion rate, 34:9 TD:INT ratio and 113.2 QB rating last year. Even with Murray now in Philadelphia, it's possible that a healthier Romo might be able to repeat or even exceed his 2014 performance.

Romo (back/finger) completed 15-of-19 passes for 191 yards with two TDs in Sunday's 26-21 playoff loss to the Packers.

Romo, who suffered a left ring finger injury in the game, according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, will now have the offseason to recover from his various aches and pains. Meanwhile, two key cogs in the Dallas offense -- WR Dez Bryant and RB DeMarco Murray -- are headed for free agency, though we suspect that the team is likely to be inclined to go all-in in order to keep Bryant, Romo's top receiving weapon.

Romo (back) returned to practice Thursday, the Cowboys' official site reports.

As expected, Romo was back at practice Thursday after receiving a routine off day on Wednesday. He'll start Sunday's game against the Packers, whose top QB, Aaron Rodgers, is dealing with a bothersome calf injury.

Romo (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

With Wednesday's absence presumably routine and maintenance-related, Romo should return to a full practice Thursday in advance of Sunday's divisional round playoff contest against the Packers.

Romo (back) completed 19-of-31 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Lions.

The Lions limited DeMarco Murray to 75 yards on 19 carries, but Romo had a big second half to lead his team back from a 20-7 deficit. As well as he played after halftime, Romo did very little before the break, with the exception of a 76-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, who would later haul in the game-winning score. The Cowboys will now travel to Lambeau Field to face an up-and-down Green Bay defense that finished the season strong.

Romo (back) completed 22-of-34 passes for 299 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's win over Washington.

While he posted his fewest passing yards total since the 2010 season when he played just six games, Romo has a legitimate argument for some MVP votes this year after leading the Cowboys to a 12-4 record. He finished with 3,705 passing yards, with 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions in 15 games, missing one contest after suffering two transverse fractures in his back. He enters the postseason with nine touchdowns in his last three games.
