Romo has now undergone back surgery twice in the last year or so, and at age 34 his long-term outlook is now a bit cloudy from a durability perspective. He missed offseason work last year after having a cyst removed, and his participation to this point this year can largely be chalked up to having more time to recover after surgery.
Witten's comments should clearly be taken with a grain of salt, since offering any skepticism about the health of his quarterback would grab undue headlines right now. But all indications are Romo will be 100 percent healthy for training camp, just in time to get fully ready for a season that may be a turning point in his career.
