Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo’s X-rays come back negative

Sep 8, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) pumps his fist on his way to the locker room after the game against the New York Giants at AT

Late in the first half the Dallas Cowboys and their fans were given a good scare when franchise quarterback Tony Romo was rolling around on the ground writhing in pain.  He left the game and was helped to the sideline. He returned to the game to start the second quarter and helped lead the Cowboys to a win over the New York Giants.

Romo had some X-rays taken to examine his ribs and the results come back negative.

“We feel optimistic with the tests coming back negative,’’ Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones tells 105.3 The Fan’s Elf and Slater. “He’ll be sore but something he’ll be able to play with, as it looks right now.’’

“It’s part of football,” Romo said. “You take some hits sometime. You’ve got to play. You just get back out there and play.”

“I’m going to be fine,” he said. “My (injury is) nothing crazy.”

A couple seasons back Tony Romo took a shot to the ribs against the San Francisco 49ers and he came back into the game to lead them to a victory. If there is one thing you can be certain about you can’t say he isn’t tough.

“You’ve got to come to the conclusion that this is one tough player, one tough man,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.
