Tony Romo led his Dallas Cowboys to a come-from-behind victory over the Washington Redskins, but it came at a cost. According to NBC Sports on Dec. 22, Romo injured his leg in the game, but no one is sure what the injury is.
The injury came when Romo was avoiding a sack in the fourth quarter comeback and completed a quick pass for a first down. However, when Romo made his spin away from the sack, he hurt his right leg. The next play, he could barely stand when he handed the ball off the DeMarco Murray.
Despite the injury, Romo was able to lead his Cowboys back from the brink of defeat, including a fourth down touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray for the big win to keep his team in the NFC playoff race.
However, heading into the Week 17 game with the Philadelphia Eagles, Romo's injury will be highly scrutinized. The questions right now is what the injury is to. With the way Romo was limping on the field after the tweak, it looked like a leg injury, and head coach Jason Garrett said that Romo suffered a foot injury.
However, Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones always has his own post-game press conference and he announced that the injury was to Romo's back. Whichever body part that he injured, he now has one week to recover before his must win game with the Philadelphia Eagles.
