The Dallas Cowboys escaped with an amazing 35-30 comeback victory on Sunday, but it seems quarterback Tony Romo could be injured again.
On Monday, when asked if he was healthy enough to return in a backup role, Romo gave an excited “Yes!” and slipped a disc in his already fragile back.
Romo has yet to play a snap this season, after breaking a bone in his back in the third preseason game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers.
Rookie backup Dak Prescott has played very well in Romo’s absence, leading the Cowboys to an impressive 8-1 record, while throwing 12 touchdowns with just two interceptions.
Yet there has been talk, that perhaps when healthy, Romo would return to the field and reassume his starting duties.
Monday’s injury will put those talks on indefinite hold.
Romo has missed over 30 games due to injury over the past seven seasons, and his age makes it unlikely that he will ever return to form.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has also named himself general manager, offensive coordinator, and team doctor has officially listed Romo as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
