Troy Aikman was asked about Tony Romo and the state of the Dallas Cowboys, because he is coming off a huge surgery. Romo feels he is ready to come back:
“I came back in a relatively short period of time because of when I had my surgery, so he’s at least afforded more time to get ready,” Aikman told the Cowboys’ website during a charity event Wednesday at AT&T Stadium. “But having said that, two back surgeries in less than a year at his age, I would be a bit concerned.”
Aikman led the Dallas Cowboys to a Super Bowl during that ’93 season, in which he completed a career-high 69.1 percent of his passes for 3,100 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions, and even though team officials believe Romo will be ready, and he is ahead of schedule Aikman is worried about Romo rushing it.
“I’m hopeful that he’s able to come back — everybody is,” Aikman said. “This team won’t be the same if he’s not able to. I anticipate that he will come back. But to say that, ‘Hey, he’s ahead of schedule and everything’s going fine,’ I’m not sure how you can really measure that here in April.”
Romo had a cyst removed from his back last spring and in December he underwent a discectomy to repair a herniated disc that cost him the final game of the 2013 season.
If Aikman is right and Romo does get hurt, it could be bad. The Cowboys need to find a back-up soon. I expect them to draft a quarterback before the 3rd round.
