OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Tony Romo paused to add up how long it would take to coddle his surgically repaired back on the first day of training camp.
The final tally for the 34-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback: about four hours.
Romo isn't worried about getting hit. He thinks he can play several more years, even joking Thursday that he'll still be taking snaps when he's 45.
But he knows he will have to alter his routine significantly after a herniated disk in a season-saving win at Washington led to back surgery that forced him out of a loss in a playoffs-or-bust finale against Philadelphia.
Romo says he will ''have no problem doing that'' as he tries to end a rare four-year playoff drought in Dallas.
