Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is healed from his collarbone surgery and ready for the off-season, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

“My surgery has healed up nicely. Looking forward to OTA’s and a full offseason. Let’s go!” Romo tweeted.

The signal caller underwent surgery earlier this month. He opted not to have a plate inserted in his shoulder and instead underwent the Mumford procedure, which shaved off part of his clavicle to relieve potential pressure on his shoulder.

The 35-year-old was expected to miss 6–8 weeks in recovery before returning to team activities in May and June.

Romo, who twice sustained a broken collarbone, started just four games last season. The Cowboys were 3–1 in his starts, but ultimately finished the campaign 4–12. 

Over his 11 NFL seasons, Romo holds a 65.3% completion rate and is a four-time Pro Bowl selection.
