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).
