Of course, it's only May, so the Cowboys are being cautious with Romo.
Romo has endured numerous injuries and ailments in his career -- a broken pinkie, punctured lung, cracked ribs and sore back among them. He has returned from all of these injuries and played well.
The removal of the cyst is minor, but it raises questions about the long-term health of the quarterback. While Romo, who just signed a $108 million deal, should be ready for training camp in late July, he'll miss valuable time with the wide receivers and tight ends during the offseason.
The Cowboys have stressed the importance of developing chemistry between the quarterback and receivers, especially after the Cowboys used a second-round draft pick on tight end Gavin Escobar. Jerry Jones wants to the Cowboys to use more two-tight end sets to spread the field, which also should open up things for a running game that finished 31st in the NFL last season.
