Jerry Jones: “Probably unlikely” Tony Romo participates in mini-camp

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that it’s “probably unlikely” that quarterback Tony Romo will participate in this month’s mandatory mini-camp after undergoing surgery to remove a cyst from his back.

“I don’t know. We’re probably going to be real conservative there, and it’s probably unlikely,” he said. “I know I said probably unlikely, but it’s still probably unlikely that he’ll be in minicamp.”

Jones claims that Romo’s recovery is going as expected.

“He’s coming along great,” Jones said. “He’s going to be ready to go and have his strength and conditioning in great shape. And of course, he’s spending all kinds of time looking at tape and doing the kinds of things that he wants to be doing to get ready for the season.”
