Cowboys QB Tony Romo expected to participate in offseason workout program this week

A wide majority of NFL teams begin their offseason program this week. One of those teams is the Dallas Cowboys, who actually start today. According to ESPN Dallas, they will have a very important player around from the open of the program. Quarterback Tony Romo, who underwent back surgery in December, is expected to participate.
In this first phase of offseason workouts, players can lift weights, run sprints, and conduct football activities without the supervision of coaches and scouts.


Report: Giants 'hearing good things' about RB David Wilson's recovery from neck surgery

ESPN's Dan Graziano wrote in his Saturday mailbag column that the Giants "are hearing good things" about running back David Wilson as he recovers from January spinal fusion surgery. However, Graziano also opines that Wilson will play only once he is fully healthy, something that would leave the team "pleasantly surprised."


It sounds like Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is back to his explosive, rookie-year form

Robert Griffin III may have been "All In for Week 1" last year, but it's clear that he wasn't his usual self. His still-healing knee and the bulky brace he wore around it held him back as he saw most of his stats take a significant drop from 2012. The biggest difference might have come with his rushing yards, which decreased from 826 in 2012 to 489 last year.
But according to Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss and former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, the old RG3 is back.
"He looks more comfortable, because he don't have to worry about that brace," Moss said about Griffin during an ESPN podcast earlier this week. "I think the brace was the big discomfort last year. You know, he's a young guy with those fiery legs that want to do so much, and that brace probably gave him a little pinch in the behind, because he couldn't do the things that he was normally accustomed to doing. You can already see, when we're out there in conditioning and stuff, he's running around, looking like the old Robert Griffin."
That follows what Cooley recently said about Griffin: "It's unbelievable. He's another person right now. I was like, 'You're running unbelievably well.' It was silly to watch. ... When you watch him run, you're like, 'You're a freak. You're seriously a freak.'"


QB specialist works out Griffin III; says old RG3 is back

Quarterback guru Terry Shea recently worked with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, and came away saying that, "he reminded me of the old Robert Griffin that I knew coming out of Baylor for those eight-10 weeks we worked together in 2012".


Giants QB Eli Manning to undergo ankle surgery Thursday

Giants quarterback Eli Manning is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic ankle surgery today in North Carolina. The procedure will clean out his left ankle, which Manning sprained in Week 17 last season.
"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," Manning said via the Giants' official website. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. (Robert) Anderson clean out the ankle. The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks."
The Giants begin their offseason program on April 21, and Manning said he is looking forward to being in the weight room and the meeting room when that time comes to learn the team's new offense from first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
