Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declares QB Tony Romo 100 percent healthy

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who underwent back surgery near the end of last season to fix a herniated disc, has had spotty participation in recent camp practices. But owner Jerry Jones says it is absolutely nothing to worry about, because Romo is healthy.
"He is 100 percent. He's 100 percent," Jones said Tuesday. "He's just being real smart and sensitive about having come off the back surgery. He's certainly not losing any ground from the standpoint of opening up against San Francisco [in the regular-season opener]."

Fantasy Analysis:

While I'd like to see how/if the surgery has affected Romo's arm strength or mobility, I'll take Jones' word here. Romo, who is a pretty sure bet for 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns when healthy, is a steal as the 13th QB off the board on average in drafts. He's a great example of why you wait on quarterbacks this year if you don't draft Brees, Rodgers, or Manning. The position is just loaded with talent, and it seems to be getting deeper every year. With Scott Linehan calling the plays, Romo might set a career-high in attempted passes this season.
