The Dallas Cowboys fans dealt with their fair share of heart dropping moments. First they saw quarterback Tony Romo lie on the turf writhing in pain after being sandwiched between a pair of New York Giants defensive players. Then they saw Dez Bryant go down with a leg injury, which caused him to express his frustration on the side line.
Today though brings a double dose of good news for the Cowboys. First, Tony Romo’s X-rays came back negative and now Dez Bryant is seeing the same results from his X-rays. Dez simply has a sprained left foot.

Watching Tony Romo down worried Dez Bryant as well as fans.
“My heart dropped,” Bryant said. “My heart dropped, just because all the hard work we done put in this whole summer, it makes you nervous.”
Romo thinks his tough guy act wasn’t anything out of the ordinary though.
“You take some hits sometimes and you’ve got to come back from it,” Romo said. “We had plenty of guys do the same thing and it was no different. You get back out there and play. I’ll be fine.”
Tight end Jason Witten said that Romo’s toughness fueled the team.
“You knew he was hurting, but that’s just him,” Witten said. “He’s a competitor. He finds a way. He did it in San Francisco. He’s done it his entire career. He’s just a warrior. He bounces back and he kept leading us and finding throws. I thought he did a great job of showing toughness. When the quarterback shows that kind of toughness I think everybody kind of feeds off that.”
