Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo left the field at the Georgia Dome on Sunday night with a minor back injury, suffered on the final play of the 19-13 loss to the Falcons, but indicated to the reporters present in the visitors’ locker room afterward that it wasn’t anything to worry about.
“I tweaked it a little bit on the last play,” Romo said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I’ll be alright. I just strained it.”
It’s not hard to see how the Cowboys signal caller could’ve “tweaked” his back on that final play, as he was forced to contort his body to escape the Atlanta pass rush before shoveling the ball off to Felix Jones. A few seconds later, Jones was tackled without issue, bringing an end to the Cowboys’ fourth loss in their last five games.
Romo finished the game 25-for-35 passing, for 321 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions.
