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).

Colin Kaepernick Refuses to Stand for National Anthem Due to Treatment of Minorities

Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem during a pre-season football game on Friday (August 26) and he is speaking out about his decision.

The 28-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback protested it during a game against the Green Bay Packers to show his support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Colin told NFL Media. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

“I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed,” he added.

Here is what the NFL said in response: “The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

Hope Solo Suspended After Calling Sweden's Team 'Cowards'

Hope Solo has been suspended from the U.S. Women’s National Team for six months.

The 35-year-old pro soccer player called the Sweden soccer team “cowards” after losing to them in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

“The comments by Hope Solo after the match against Sweden during the 2016 Olympics were unacceptable and do not meet the standard of conduct we require from our National Team players,” U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati said. “Beyond the athletic arena, and beyond the results, the Olympics celebrate and represent the ideals of fair play and respect. We expect all of our representatives to honor those principles, with no exceptions.”

The statement continued, “Taking into consideration the past incidents involving Hope, as well as the private conversations we’ve had requiring her to conduct herself in a manner befitting a U.S. National Team member, U.S. Soccer determined this is the appropriate disciplinary action.”

As a result, Hope will not be eligible for the team until February of 2017.
