All eyes on Tony Romo at Cowboys Training Camp

OXNARD, CA (KLTV) - All eyes are on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo early in training camp to see how he responds from the second back surgery of his career.

Romo was made available to the media on Thursday night in Oxnard, California and our sports director Ryan Peterson was there in the middle of the madness.

Despite watching a majority of practice Thursday afternoon, Tony Romo says everything is on schedule. "I could have went all of them but today without going against the defense I felt like lets be smart," Romo said. "Talking with the trainers and coaches to just come up with a plan."

Romo plans to stick with the plan. The 34 year old says he is pain free, but won't take a chance to open training camp with too many reps, too soon. "I think you want to make sure the first day or two you wake up and everything is the same," Romo said. "I think its going to be there is no reason not too, but they pay a lot money to these guys to assess the numbers and make sure you are progressing. It's just the smart thing to do."

Coming off multiple back surgeries, Romo doesn't believe his window is closing. He loves his job and only sees football in his future. "The older you get, the more you understand how precious and how lucky you are to play this game at the highest level," Romo said. "It's a neat thing to be able to think about and just know hopefully you have a long time left to do that."
