ESPN's Stephania Bell on Cowboys QB Tony Romo's back injury: "The protocol following such a procedure is fairly straightforward, and the timetable for return to activity sees the majority of athletes coming back within six months. Romo appears to have made steady progress in his recovery, enough to allow him to participate in light offseason workouts and organized team activities. Both he and the Cowboys anticipate his full participation in training camp.
"At this point, there is no reason to think Romo won't be ready to start the season. The biggest concern for the quarterback will be what it has always been: Will he have enough protection against opposing defenses that, given his accumulation of various injuries throughout his career, see an even bigger bull's-eye on his back?"
