Tony Romo has declared that he wants to be involved in the upcoming Hall of Fame game with the Miami Dolphins this weekend.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback had an operation to remove a cyst from his back last April, which ruled him out of any training whatsoever until the middle of June.
But now he is keen to continue his road to recovery by playing some part when the two teams go head-to-head at the Fawcett Stadium on Sunday.
In an interview with ESPN.com, Romo explained his constant desire to play football: "If I did play, it would be a series, (so) whether you went eight plays or three plays, I'm not sure how much that is going to affect that.
"Saying that, I still want to play every time I suit up. Every time I step out there - your juices are flowing and you want to compete. From that perspective, yeah, but whatever the coaches want."
It seems that the decision over his participation will ultimately fall to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who will this week decide his line-up for the NFL's annual pre-season curtain raiser.
Garrett confirmed that no decisions have been made regarding player involvement but he will decide this week.
Romo has previously played one series in the Hall of Fame game against Cincinnati in 2010.
