"Do you want to call it a toothache?" Jones said Wednesday morning.

The Cowboys have downplayed the significance of the surgery and Romo hinted he might return for the veteran minicamp June 11-13.

Romo said the cyst wasn't cancerous and he didn't know the size of it.

"I feel a lot better," Romo said. "It was something that was there a little bit, kind of annoying. I'd rather feel 100 percent here. Hopefully I'll be back for minicamp and be ready to go, but we're just being smart now for the next couple of weeks."

Romo had the surgery last month and is expected to miss a total of three weeks.
