Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has suffered another injury. He now has a broken bone in his back and could miss six to 10 weeks.
He suffered the injury on the third play of the Cowboys preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. The QB was hit from behind by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril while he was trying to get up field. He reached for his back as soon as it happened. As of now, he will not require surgery as he walked off the field under his own power.
In a press conference Saturday, Coach Jason Garrett said he will not rule Romo out for the whole season and that the team has received tables for a possible return.
Romo has missed a large amount of time the past few seasons from injuries. This includes 12 games last season when he broke his collarbone.
