Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo claims he could play in a game today if he had to even though his back isn’t quite 100 percent yet.

“I don’t think it’s slow anymore,” Romo said via the Dallas Morning News. “I think earlier on, right after surgery, you kind of go through that mode of getting healthy, kind of having to not do too much right away. But now I’m to a point where I can push it and kind of go, and I feel like at this point I could play in a game if I had to.

“Obviously you wouldn’t want to right yet, just to let it completely scar up and heal in all the areas that you want. In the next couple weeks I think I’ll be 100 percent.”

Romo doesn’t believe he’ll have ay setbacks.

“Your ultimate goal is to be 100 percent on Day 1 of training camp so you don’t miss any time,” Romo said. “That’s what, starting this process, you were thinking. Now I feel good enough that I’m taking reps and doing things out there, but at the same token you want to be smart and not do anything to set it back, per se. But I don’t envision anything like that happening at this point.”
