Romo expected to be available for majority of upcoming activities.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo participated in the team’s voluntary off-season program which started on Monday after recovering from back surgery.

According to ESPN, the 34-year-old was involved in activities on Monday after missing the final game of the 2013 season to undergo back surgery, and it is claimed that he is on target in his rehabilitation program.

It is understood that in the first phase of the off-season workouts, the players can lift weights, run sprints and conduct football activities without the supervision of coaches and scouts.

While this is the first of several off-season workouts that the Cowboys will conduct, they are also expected to host a rookie mini-camp the weekend after the NFL draft which takes place on May 8-10.

Following on from that, the organisation will have organised team activities in June and Romo is expected to participate in most, if not all, of the activities as he continues his recovery process.

Last December, the Cowboys quarterback underwent a discectomy to repair a herniated disk after injuring his back in a Week 16 game against the Washington Redskins.

Team officials have revealed that he has recovered well from the surgery while Romo himself has recently insisted that everything has gone according to plan since the procedure and is taking his time to go through all the necessary stages before reaching full health.

Romo finished the 2013 season throwing for 3,828 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, and he will look to play an integral role in the organisation’s push for playoff football in the upcoming season.
