Romo to miss workouts after back surgery

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to miss the team's offseason training activities as he continues to recover from back surgery performed last month.

According to the Cowboys' website, Romo had a cyst removed from his back last month. The team expects him to be ready for training camp in July.

The Cowboys are set to start OTAs on Tuesday and will also have a three-day minicamp in June.

Romo inked a six-year contract extension in late March, a deal reported to be worth $108 million with $55 million guaranteed.

The 33-year-old veteran is coming off a 2012 season that included a career- high 4,903 passing yards to go along with 28 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. However, his passer rating of 90.5 was the lowest of his career.

Romo joined Dallas in 2003 and became the starting quarterback in 2006. He has thrown for 25,737 yards with 177 touchdowns and 91 interceptions in 121 career games.
