The floodgates have now opened as it pertains to the Tony Romo injury saga in Dallas.
Amid the initial report yesterday that the MRI results on the embattled Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s back came back with news that he would not be able to play in this Sunday’s NFC East title showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles, and would be gone for the rest of the season, we’re learning more and more by the minute.
Now we’re learning that the quarterback is taking every measure he can to deal the best with this injury that he possibly can, and that includes the always famous injection needle.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Romo has received an epidural injection to deal with the pain of the reported herniated disk in his back:
