STAND-UP MOMENT: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo makes it to team meeting

STAND-UP MOMENT - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo makes it to team meeting - 2013 Dallas Cowboys

Three days after back surgery, Tony Romo made it to Valley Ranch for the final team meeting.

“I think that just speaks to what he is,” tight end Jason Witten said. “Going to find a way to come in, see the guys. It was obviously an emotional time. No team stays the same. It’s just what he’s all about. I thought it was great of him to come and be here and just share this time. It’s tough, and he’s a big part of this team. That was very stand-up of him to be here in the midst of the pain I’m sure he’s in.”

Asked if he is worried about Romo’s future, Witten said the quarterback will come back better than ever next season.

“Obviously, it’s been a tough eight months for him physically,” Witten said. “But I feel confident in him. I know what he’s made of. I know how he works, I know how he competes, I know how he trains. But he’ll bounce back and be even better next year. He’ll use this time to evaluate and get healthy and provide perspective and be a better quarterback because of it. I’m confident he’ll come back. I know what he’s made of. I’ve seen it for a long time, how he goes about it, and he’ll bounce back and be better than he’s ever been. I believe that to the bottom of my heart.”

Witten said it was also an emotional week for Romo.

“Obviously, it was difficult not having him out there,” he said. “You know, it was an emotional week for him. Fighting with him every week, you go into that last game, I know it was tough for him not to be in that moment with us, leading that charge. But yeah, he’ll be back. Better than ever.”
