The Dallas Cowboys have cleared quarterback Tony Romo medically to return to action after he underwent offseason surgery to remove a cyst from his back. While Romo has been cleared, head coach Jason Garrett told reporters – including Dan Hanzus of NFL.com – that the team will continue to monitor the quarterback as he resumes throwing. "He's been throwing regularly for the last month or so, and he feels good," Garrett said, "but we'll certainly watch that as camp starts and make sure he's getting the right pitch count as we go." Garrett added that Romo won’t be on a throw count during training camp. Instead, the coach will have more communication than usual with his signal caller, checking in to make sure everything is feeling normal. "It's more communication, 'How you feeling?' And you also look at the ball. Does the ball look a little dead or tired?" Garrett said. "But mostly it's communication with him and how he's feeling. We'll all get a sense for that and communicate about that really each and every day and come up with a plan." Romo and the Cowboys are coming off another disappointing season, but that didn’t stop Dallas from handing him a lucrative contract extension. It’s to be determined if the Cowboys can take the next step with Romo under center, and Dallas will take early precautions to ensure that he’s at least fully healthy while attempting to lead the team.
