Tony Romo out 6-10 Weeks with Broken Bone in his Back

August 27th, 2016

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss the next 6-10 weeks after suffering a broken bone in his back Thursday against the Seattle Seahawks. The injury itself looked really bad, but the Cowboys didn't seem to be too worried following the game. In fact, Romo was seen throwing with helmet still on after being taken to the turf by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril

The six-week time frame would suggest that Romo will miss the first quarter of the season. If he's out 10 weeks, that would take the quarterback to the second half of the season. Rookie fourth-round pick Dak Prescott will likely start in his stead. 

We'll update the information as it becomes available.
