As the 2016-2017 NFL season approaches, the condition of Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo’s collarbone has been updated. It’s been reported he’s now able to throw without restriction.
To avoid further damage to the problematic area, Romo, 35, underwent “Mumford” surgery on March 8 to shave down the clavicle and help reduce stress. The quarterback broke his collarbone twice last season, once in week two and again in week 12, which sidelined him for the remainder of the season.
According to NFL.com, Romo, however, seems to be optimistic about the upcoming season considering his positive progression.
“I can throw fully,” he said. “I’ve been throwing fully here for a good week and a half, two weeks. Its been good.”
Offseason workouts for the Cowboys open Monday, April 18. While Romo is looking forward to begin training, he should probably take it slow, but, there should be no concerns regarding Romo’s availability when it comes time for training camp.
