The Dallas Cowboys' medical staff has cleared quarterback Tony Romo to begin practicing when training camp starts. Romo underwent minor surgery to have a non-cancerous cyst removed from his back in April. The surgery prevented Romo from participating in offseason workouts other than some light throwing in walk-through practices.

FF Today's Take:Romo will have a new playcaller (Bill Callahan) for the first time since he became the full-time starter in 2007. "I'll just be more involved in game-planning," Romo recently told the Racine (Wis.) Journal Times. For all the criticism he draws about not being "clutch", he has been a top-10 fantasy quarterback in all but one year since his promotion (he played just six games in 2010). Expect that trend to continue in 2013.
