Quarterback Tony Romo will be on hand when the Dallas Cowboys begin their offseason program, according to a report from ESPN.com.
Romo's season prematurely ended when he was forced to undergo back surgery. The report states his rehab is on track.
Phase One of the offseason schedule means teams can participate in strength and conditioning exercises and work on the field without supervision of the coaching staff.
Romo's availability is big for numerous reasons, the obvious being that he can get as much time with his teammates as possible. He can also become the de facto coach during any on-field workouts the team participates in during Phase One.
