Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has made excellent progress since back surgery and will soon move into the next stage of his rehabilitation, according to a Dallas Morning News report.
Romo had surgery to relieve the pressure of a herniated disk on Dec. 27, two days before the Cowboys' regular season ended with a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.
The newspaper reported Romo likely will be cleared for low-impact work over the next week or two. Romo has been limited to basic core and stabilization exercises to bolster strength and flexibility in his lower back.
Cowboys officials, including owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett, said last month that Romo had experienced relief from the surgery and was on target to be ready for the start of offseason team activities in the spring.
Romo threw for 3,828 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season.
