Cowboys QB Romo on track for OTA's - takes in Duke, Carolina game

In an interview after Saturday night's ACC hoops showdown between Duke and North Carolina at Cameron, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo said he's feeling good, his post-back surgery rehab is going well, and he's on schedule for the Cowboys' Organized Team Activities when they start next month."It's going good," Romo told ESPN during Saturday night's interview. "We're getting close now to (returning). Usually takes three months, it's just a normal kind of roundabout date that they give ya and we're right on schedule. Really ahead in a lot of ways. Just going to be ready to go here in about a month and rehab is going good, no setbacks of any kind. Mine (surgery) was just a normal small version of it, so I should be good to go here shortly." Romo missed the Cowboys last couple games of the season due to the injury

Romo and Head Coach Jason Garrett were in Durham this weekend to work with quarterback guru and Duke head football coach, David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe is also known for working with Broncos QB Peyton Manning while he was rehabbing his neck injury two years ago. Romo and Garrett even took place in a quick game of PIG with ESPN analyst and former Duke great, Jayson WIlliams and current Duke guard Quinn Cook Friday night.

Fantasy Analysis:

The words "back surgery" and "minor" don't typically go hand in hand, but as back surgeries go, Romo's was indeed not expected to be a huge setback. Good news for Cowboys' fans and for fantasy football players alike. A healthy Romo is necessary for WR Dez Bryant @DezBryant, TE Jason Witten @JasonWitten, and any other offensive skill player that hits the field for Dallas in 2014. We all saw the Kyle Orton experiment, and I even tried to be optimistic about it. Orton is not nearly as solid as Romo. In my opinion, a healthy Romo with healthy weapons is a top 10 QB in 2014.
