Tony Romo Breaks Bone in His Back, Won't Play Until Mid-Season

Tony Romo will be sitting out of the current football season until further notice after breaking a bone in his back.

The 36-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback could miss six to ten weeks after suffering a compression fracture during a pre-season game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday (August 25).

Tony said he was fine after being hit by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, but he was taken out of the game and an MRI revealed the damage.

“We’re confident that he’s going to be coming back and playing football for us this year,” coach Jason Garrett said (via USA Today).

    Ok that’s the last straw for him. He needs to pack it in. He’s done.

    Can he just retire already? Dak has been great preseason. He might as well take over.

    smh Look, he’s got his own unique talents that make him a good qb but I think he is made of glass or something.

    Retire Romo before something permanent happens to you. You have 2 babies to support, ESPN or any sports show would love to have you. Take Jerry’s money and retire.

    Happened to me 13 years ago, never recovered fully but I was out of the country, hopefully he got good care right away. I would not wish back problems on my worst enemy.

    There’s a special set exercises that Dennis Lillee helped develop to flex the back and restore strength. Exercise using weights for your torso while going through the natural motion of throwing the ball.
