Tony Romo has broken bone in his back, out 6-10 weeks
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered a broken bone in his back and could miss six to 10 weeks. He suffered the injury, a compression fracture of his L1 vertebra. He won't require surgery. "We don't believe that to be the case at all," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said when asked if Romo's season was in jeopardy. "Again it's not related to the other back issues that he's had (and is) very specific to the hit he took the other night at the game. And he came out and he was lobbying to go back in. "We decided to not have him go back in, and then he actually felt fine after the game. Then he woke up on Friday morning and didn't feel so good and (the back) stiffened up on him, and that's when we did the MRI. And that's what we found."
