Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is known for his struggles in December.

So far, Romo is doing pretty good in February.

Romo had surgery late last year to relieve the pressure of a herniated disk, but has made “excellent” progress and will quickly move to his next stage of rehabilitation, according to The Dallas Morning News. He has reportedly performed “basic core and stabilization exercises," which is designed to strengthen his lower back.

The Dallas Morning News also reported Romo is feeling good, and he was able to perform the exercises.

Romo sustained his injury prior to Dallas’ season finale against Philadelphia. He was unable to participate in that game, and Philadelphia advanced to the playoffs after a 24-22 victory against Romo’s team.

The injury overshadowed one of Romo’s best NFL seasons. Romo threw for 3,828 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. However, Dallas missed the playoffs again with Romo under center.

Fortunately, for Romo, it appears he is on pace to be ready for the 2014 season.
