The first day of the Dallas Cowboys’ organized team activities was more about who was “not” on the field as opposed to who was. Quarterback Tony Romo announced Tuesday that he had back surgery last month to remove a cyst. The surgery will require him to be sidelined for the next two-three weeks. Romo downplayed the severity of the injury saying he could play if he had too.
“It was just kind of like ‘What is this? Let’s go take care of this…There was no ‘Woah, that’s the biggest thing I’ve ever seen!’ It was just a little cyst, so we just took it out and they said ‘OK, you’re good.’”
Running back DeMarco Murray, no stranger to injury himself, sat out of Tuesday’s practice due to a “tweaked” hamstring. Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett described the move as the team simply being extra careful:
”We understand it’s May 21st and we’re going to err on the side of caution with all of our players….We anticipate seeing him (Murray) here in the next couple practices…probably early next week.”
