Tony Romo is the 14th quarterback to be knocked out of an NFL game this season.
He was just sidelined in the second quarter of the Dallas Cowboys’ game with the New York Giants. New York linebacker Michael Boley came free on a blitz and drove Romo into the turf after he released the ball. He has a shoulder injury. Jon Kitna has replaced him.
Romo is the fifth quarterback the Giants have knocked out of a game. They got two – Jay Cutler and Todd Collins – against the Chicago Bears.
How do we know Romo is No. 14 leaguewide? Well, Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News reported today that San Francisco’s Alex Smith became the 13th QB to go out on Sunday with a separated shoulder in the 49ers’ loss at Carolina.
The Cowboys lead the Giants 20-7 midway through the second quarter after just getting an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown by Dez Bryant.
