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.
Manager John Farrell has named Edward Mujica the closer to start the season.
This is a strange decision. Sure, Uehara struggled down the stretch last year, but his final numbers for 2014 were still great. He struck out more than 30 percent of batters faced and walked virtually no one. Mujica, on the other hand, has had a below average strikeout rate for three years running. Don't pay anything of consequence for Mujica, and Uehara is a guy to target if you have deep enough roster settings to hold on to him for a bit. Analysis: Brett Talley
Rougned Odor left Sunday's game with a bruised left shin.
Thankfully, this doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. Odor had a very respectable debut last year as 20-year old, hitting .259 with nine home runs in just over 400 plate appearances. With a full season of work, he could approach 15 home runs, and his batting average could improve given how frequently he made contact last year. The future is bright for Odor. Analysis: Brett Talley
