Conflicting reports on Tony Romo’s injury


While the Dallas Cowboys were attempting to come back in the fourth quarter to take down the division rival Washington Redskins, quarterback Tony Romo got tripped up while attempting to extend a play and ended up injured.

Romo stayed on the field and finished the game, but he was noticeably limping and wincing in pain.

After the game, the media wanted to receive more information about the Cowboys quarterback’s injury, but it appears that no one has a clear answer. As you can tell by their answers, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and owner/general manager Jerry Jones did not see eye-to-eye.

From Ed Werder of ESPN:

It is interesting that two key figures in the organization have conflicting reports on Romo’s injury, but it isn’t entirely a surprise given the franchise.

We will have to wait and see what the official diagnosis is, but we have a feeling that Jones will not appreciate his head coach contradicting his report.
