Romo getting MRI

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he will undergo an MRI exam on his back Monday but doesn’t believe his availability for Dallas’ regular-season finale against Philadelphia will be jeopardized.

Romo, according to owner Jerry Jones, said he began feeling soreness during practice last week after his back tightened.

On Sunday,  during Dallas’ 24-23 victory over Washington, Romo began experiencing discomfort after being hit early in the game. On the first drive of the fourth quarter, after spinning away from an oncoming rusher during an eight-yard completion to Miles Austin, Romo was seen limping.

“You just play through it,” he said. “It’s football.”

Team owner Jerry Jones said Romo’s injury was a muscular issue and had nothing do with the cyst that was removed from his back last April.

“We think it will be OK,” Jones said. “But it was a tightening. It wasn’t a contusion. It was a little tightening there. But we will work on that all week… He’s kind of getting some special treatment for it. It didn’t keep him from playing and won’t keep him from playing.”

When my back goes out I am done, as in I can barely move. The fact that Romo not only played but won the game is nothing short of amazing.
Hawk

I understand he also hurt his foot somehow, haven't seen the info on that yet.

No he hurt his back. He has a bulging disk and the pain made him look like he hurt his leg. The guy is such a warrior.

I found this also interesting. People, especially the media and some fair weather fans, act like the bad Romo and the good Romo are equal. Like Romo is as apt to throw a interception as to lead a fourth quarter comeback.

I got this from Pro Football Focus and Pro Football Reference.

In his career Romo has thrown (8) interceptions with the team tied or behind with under four minutes to go in a game. The bad Romo.

In the same time frame, he as had (32) come from behind wins. Defined as having a game winning drive with under four minutes to go and either tied or behind. The good Romo.

Oh and the (8) ints lead football. Second is Tom Brady with 7 and then Drew Brees with 6. Good company.

Lastly, I heard some guy on ESPN state that the reason the Cowboys won was more to do with Murry than Romo...

The last drive was 87 yards. Romo had 92 yards passing on the drive. Murry was -8 yards rushing. All Murry?
Hawk

All good points as usual, but the haters would just ignore it all anyway. It seems most Cowboy fans these days can only find the negative.

This forum being the exception  geek

Hey maybe Murray is doing better because they got him a fullback who can block. I've been watching closely, and Murray watches the guy block then makes his cut. It seems to be working out pretty well.

Plus on his 45 yrd run, Williams was blocking for him all the way. That's what real WRers do, I'm actually warming to the kid, he's making some plays.
BevoMav

Funny the fullback they signed fumbled after a catch. His name is Klutz. oops..

You are right..all sites are being taken over with hatred and idiocy. If you look at the posts, they are just statements to get a reaction.

The whole premise of most of these posts is, because I say so. DB.com is no exception, in fact I quit going there because of he ******.
Hawk

The Ranch is the worst, 90% a$$holes, and they are all ina compition tosee who can copy and paste the first article.

Then they have at least 4-5 posts on the same subject, its a fuking joke.

Adam has sent me a couple of nasty e-mails, but I didn't even bother to respond, I bet he feels stupid today lmao. But I know he's hoping we fail next week so he can send me another nasty e-mail.

I'm pretty much done with DB, its just a troll site.
BevoMav

Just read that Romo is out for the season, with a back injury. All I know is it is muscular in nature but he is done. Time for Orton to step up..

Lot more info coming in..

Mike Fisher just came on 105.3 The Fan..Cowboys station..Said Romo had to be helped off the plane by Jason Witten..this after the Skins game..and could barely get in his car..

but...Fish is also saying the Cowboys are not wanting to declare if he is in or out..The hope is his disk is about pain and not motor function.

The odds are against Romo playing but he played with a herniated disk and won the Washington game.
Hawk

Its a herniated disc ....Garrett says its a day to day deal, and he'll be evaluated again on Wed.

Of course Garrett might be telling a story so the Eagles won't know who to prepare for.

Fisher says it depends if its a nerve problem or motor movement as to weather he can play.

If he doesn't play and we lose things will get interesting at the Ranch!
Hawk

Okay you were editing while I was typing...we had the sameinfo

Just listened to Witten..He said he had no idea he was that injured until after the game..
Hawk

He sure didn't show it, except when he was limping. Would be a bad ending for what started out with a lot of hope.

The injuries to him are mounting, at his age this is not a good thing.
LoneStar

They have claimed Orton was the best backup in the league (and we've seen some good ones) I think he can beat the Eagles. But it will be quick release and short passes, and Murray running the ball.

We can still beat them
El Kabong

I see lot has happened since early today, and nothing good, but I do have faith Orton can beat the eagirls
LoneStar

Well we are about to find out how good this o-line of our is.

Another off season surgery how many times can he keep coming back?

All the Cowboys QBs since Don Meridith left because of to many injuries, except Danny White. I'm talking about the great Cowboy QBs, not guys like Carter.

I'm not sure Tony's body can keep this up? Tony has not suffered the head trauma the other guys did, so maybe he'll bounce back again.
BevoMav

The last one was to remove a cyst near the spine..This will be a simple shaving of the disk.. Three month recovery time..
zigomanis18

On a side note to this game,

everything points to Garrett getting fired ( Thank God ) if the boys lose this game. So, in one sense, they win regardless. If they win, great, we get the division. If we lose GREAT, limp dick is gone !!!!!
Hawk

I still like Garrett, and the direction he has the team headed in.

I sure has hell don't want to start all over again with a whole new system. That is what has killed the defense. The offense has put up the numbers this year.

Jones is not firing Garrett and just paying him off, so I guess you'll have another year to complain.

I remember when you wanted Shanahan...how has that worked out?
zigomanis18

SHANAHAN?

I'll take him any day over carrot top. Shanahan has WON 2 super bowls and had a great year last year. Yeah, they are bad this year, but I blame lots of that on the screwed up owner.

Tell you what, When Shanahan is gone, hell get another job very soon. NO ONE will want Garrett. NO one!

Cowboys DO need a new system, and new players. They need to start all over.
Hawk

You can have you're opinion, but its way off base. First how many years was Shanahan the Denver coach before he won a SB? How About we give Garrett the same amount of years.

2 other teams wanted Garrett, and JJ out bid them. The Cowboys record isn't what we want, but we are a hellava lot better than some other teams.
Garrett will be snatched up in a hurry if he's fired, take the hater blinders off.
Nightrider

Going back on topic here, I hope Tony gets well fast we will need him. I think Orton will be confusing to Philly. He has a quick release and we will probably run the ball 25 times.

I really don't feel that all is lost, Orton is capable of getting it done.

JJ is insisting that Romo might be cleared to play against the Eagles.
BluenSilver4evr

With Romo likely out, its like last year. Had we beaten the Redskins, we could not have fielded a team worth a crap for the playoffs.

The question being, is it worth it to keep risking injury to valuable players, or just sit them down. Half the guys still on the field have problems.

Yeah 2 other teams wanted him back then...NO ONE will want him now. Mark my words, Shanahan will work again. Garrett will NOT be a head coach for anyone. It only took Shanahan 3 years to win a SB. He started in 1995 as the Denver head coach and in 97-98 won back to back.

And no, I don't want any MORE lousy seasons. We have suffered enough in the last decade plus...Garrett MAY be a coordinator, but not a head coach. This was mentioned on ESPN and I agree 100 %.

I agree. This team is NOT playoff material. With that stated, it still would be nice to win the division anyways. Something to be proud of anyways.

but truth be told. the Cowboys are ONLY in this because of the lousy division, of which they are 5-0 in. Outside of the division, they are 3-7, and they will not be playing their division in the playoffs.
LoneStar

Lets not forget, anything can happen if you just get in. The Cowboys will be getting back some key players. Plus an extra week off to rest and get ready.

Extra week off? No. Unless they changed the rules that I don't of only the first and second seeds get that...and they cannot qualify for that now. Now weeks off.
LoneStar

Okay so we play one of the wildcard teams the first week? Its been so long since we were in the playoffs I don't remember how it works. colors

Tony Romo’s name never appeared on the Cowboys’ injury report last week despite the fact that team owner Jerry Jones and the quarterback both said he was experiencing problems with his back last week, Rainer Sabin of theDallas Morning News reports.

Now the NFL is planning to investigate why the team didn’t disclose that information.

“We will look into it,” league spokesperson Greg Aiello wrote via email.

The Cowboys could be fined for violating the NFL’s rules for reporting injury updates.

“All players with significant or noteworthy injuries must be listed on the report, even if the player takes all the reps in practice, and even if the team is certain that he will play in the upcoming game,” the NFL injury reporting policy states. “This is especially true of key players and those players whose injuries have been covered extensively by the media.

“This policy is of paramount importance in maintaining the integrity of the NFL

If that is true Hawk, I am not surprised.

It would be just another chapter is the disfunctionality of what was once
the greatest organization in football.

By far the 2 WORST owners in this league are in Dallas and Washington.

I long ago stopped worrying about JJ, he won't change, that's just something us long time fans have to realize.

But wouldn't surprise me if the league fines us for this BS.
