Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is progressing well from back surgery and has started the first phase of exercises, according to multiple sources.
Romo underwent a discectomy to repair a herniated disk on Dec. 27. He was home the same day and attended exit meetings at Valley Ranch two days after surgery.
Cowboys officials, including owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett, said last month that Romo had experienced relief from the surgery and was on target to be ready for the start of offseason team activities in the spring.
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
