Jerry Jones says Tony Romo is 100 percent healthy


There are plenty of question marks for the Dallas Cowboys entering the 2014 season, but Jerry Jones doesn’t want Tony Romo’s health to be one of them. Jones told Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that his $100 million quarterback, Tony Romo is 100% healthy.

“He is 100 percent. He’s 100 percent,” Jones said during practice 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].”

“I just had a brief visit with him on the way out to practice,” Jerry Jones said. “We feel real good. We’re really pleased with the way he’s practicing and the work he’s getting done and what he’s doing both on and off the field, but nothing in any way would concern you certainly about his back.”

With linebacker Sean Lee being lost for the season, and rookie DeMarcus Lawrence being out 8-12 weeks with a broken foot, injuries are the early headline for the Cowboys. Romo’s health will be key for the team’s offense, and more importantly, the leadership for the team as a whole.

The Cowboys have finished 8-8 for the past three seasons, Romo miscues and defensive mishaps have been a huge reason why. If Romo stays healthy and consistent, the Cowboys offense could grow under new passing coordinator Scott Linehan.
