The Cowboys will continue to ease Tony Romo back into their offseason program, as has been the case since the team reported for voluntary workouts six weeks ago.

To hear it from Romo, though, he would be able to suit up if the Cowboys had a game on Sunday. The surgery he underwent on a herniated disc in his back on Dec. 27 is roughly 23 weeks behind him, and Romo said the slow portion of his rehab is as well.

“I don’t think it’s slow anymore. 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,” he said. “But now I’m to a point where you can push it and kind of go, and I feel like at this point I could play in a game if I had to.”

That’s not to say the Cowboys would want him to. Romo hasn’t even been the primary quarterback during the full-team periods of offseason practices, ceding that duty to Brandon Weeden. He might be capable of playing, but Romo added that there’s still some recovery time left in the process.

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