Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo came away from Sunday’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars feeling sore but OK after taking a shot in the second half.
Romo was pulled for Brandon Weeden in the fourth quarter, with the game well out of hand for the Jags, and a good deal of fans thought he should’ve been sat down a lot earlier. Even with the hit and the early exit, Romo had a big day in his return, going 20-27 passing for three touchdowns and no interceptions.
The veteran signal caller and his aching back will be helped by the fact that Dallas is on a bye this week.
"Just sore," Romo said after the 31-17 win Sunday, per ESPN Dallas. "Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play."
