Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he’s also been checking in regularly with quarterback Tony Romo following his back surgery Dec. 27 to repair a herniated disk.
“He says he feels really good,” Garrett said. “I think anybody who has that surgery will tell you the same thing: Initially, they feel great because there’s so much pressure back there on the nerves and whatever goes into that injury. So they get immediate relief, and then they have to recover from the actual surgery itself.
“So he’s moving around and everyone’s optimistic he’ll be back and ready to go for the off-season program.”
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
