During tonight’s Dallas Cowboys preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, it seemed like QB Tony Romo injured his back on two different sets of plays and head coach Jason Garrett has pulled him from the rest of the game. There is little doubt that Cowboys fans should see him next week in the final preseason game. You don’t see the starters for that much in the week four game, but Cowboys fans should not expect to see him at all.This is not Tony Romo’s first rodeo with suffering from an injury. Since Tony Romo has been in the NFL, he has had a total of 6 injuries that have ranged from back injuries to hand injuries and so on.
Tony Romo appeared to hurt his back. Great block by Zeke, but certainly not what the Cowboys want to see pic.twitter.com/21rt9cUjp2

This is not Tony Romo’s first rodeo with suffering from an injury. Since Tony Romo has been in the NFL, he has had a total of 6 injuries that have ranged from back injuries to hand injuries and so on. Also, this is the 3rd time he injured his back in the last three years as his other two times were in 2013 and 2014. I think if he wants to play any longer, he needs to change the style he plays. He is 36 years old, and he is an out of the pocket QB. Once you get out the pocket, your tendency to getting sacked goes up.It is also being reported that it was the coach’s decision to pull him out of the game, and that was the correct move in my eyes.
If Jason Garrett would have kept him in there longer in a meaningless game, then he would have risked Tony Romo being more injured and possibly miss some time during the season. Like I said before, Tony Romo is 36 and has been in the NFL for 13 years and is not getting younger. Dallas does have Dak Prescott will probably start next week and who has been impressive this preseason. He is probably going to be the one to take over once the Tony Romo era is over, what will be interesting to see is with a number of times that Tony Romo gets injured, could that be sooner rather than later.
