Cowboys’ Romo takes optimistic view after lost 2015 season

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo anticipates getting a “head start” on the offseason after missing most of 2015 with a twice-broken left collarbone that helped send the Cowboys from first to worst in the NFC East.

The 35-year-old Dallas quarterback said Monday he will continue rehab work, which will push him further along than normal once offseason practices start in May. Romo says he will also be another year removed from back injuries that plagued him in 2013-14.

Romo said the 4-12 season that wrapped up with a 34-23 loss to Washington was “a disappointing year for everybody.”

The Cowboys lost all seven games Romo missed after breaking the collarbone. He broke it again the second game back, and Dallas won just once after that.’
