Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – Tony Romo left Monday night’s game against
the Washington Redskins after aggravating a back injury, but the Cowboys
quarterback returned late in the fourth quarter.
Early in the third, Romo dropped back on third down and was sacked by
linebacker Keenan Robinson. Robinson appeared to inadvertently knee Romo in
his surgically-repaired back, and Romo twisted as he went to the ground.
He remained on the turf in obvious pain for several minutes before being
helped to the locker room, where he stayed until roughly five minutes in
regulation remained in a 17-17 game.
Romo, who underwent surgery on his back following Week 16 last season and
missed the Cowboys’ final game, was back on the field for final drive
in regulation but did not lead Dallas past midfield.
