Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo announced on Twitter that his balky left collarbone is fully healed and that he’s ready to prepare for the 2016 season.
My surgery has healed up nicely. Looking forward to OTA's and a full offseason. Let's go!

A 14-year veteran, Romo broke his left collarbone twice and was limited to four games in 2015. Over that stretch, he threw for 884 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Dallas crumbled without its star quarterback and went 4-12 as a result, relying on an unreliable trio of Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Kellen Moore at quarterback down the stretch. The Cowboys were also hurt by the lack of a fully healthy Dez Bryant, who missed extended time with a foot injury.
And now, Romo appears fully ready to get back in the saddle despite rampant speculation that Dallas could wind up drafting a quarterback with the No. 4 pick in next month’s NFL Draft. It’s great that he’s so mentally focused but since he’s 35 years old and not getting any younger, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Cowboys draft for the future at some point in April.
