Romo recovering from surgery: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo won’t be a part of the upcoming organized team activities as he recovers from surgery to remove a cyst on his back. Romo says if a regular season game were approaching, he’d be able to play but is choosing to sit out the voluntary camp in order to recuperate. The veteran is one of the tougher QBs in the game, though he doesn’t always get credit for it. How many quarterbacks lead come-from-behind victories with a punctured lung? We fully expect Romo to be ready to go for the start of the season and should remain a top 10 option in most leagues.
Ball, Hillman sharing reps: With no Willis McGahee at Broncos’ OTAs and Knowshon Moreno prohibited from taking reps as he recovers from a knee injury, it fell to Ronnie Hillman and rookie Montee Ball to carry the load. It could be a sign of what’s to come this season. The Broncos don’t believe Hillman is capable to being a lead runner; age has slowed McGahee and Moreno’s health issues have made him an unreliable option. It appears that the starting job could be Ball’s to lose. Temper your enthusiasm, though. As long as Peyton Manning is healthy and has a full complement of pass-catchers, this team will still rely on its aerial attack.
Woods looks to be No. 2 for Bills: Second-round draft pick Robert Woods is in camp with the Bills and all signs point to him being Buffalo’s No. 2 receiver behind Stevie Johnson. While Woods was overshadowed in his final season at USC, he is a consistent playmaker who runs excellent routes and shows good hands. His value will be dictated by whoever is under center for the Bills, but Woods has plenty of sleeper upside as a No. 4 fantasy WR option in most leagues.
