Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the Dallas Morning News that fullback Lawrence Vickers underwent back surgery this past Friday.
Jones said the surgery will limit Vickers this off-season, however.
“He is going to be fine,” Jones said. “It is not a concern.”
Vickers, who turns 30 on May 8, is under contract for $1.2 million in 2013. Jones was asked if he should pay Vickers that much.
“That is what you look at,” Jones said. “We like him. He has done an outstanding job. As we sit here today, I would say, ‘Yes.’”
