    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is feeling alright after taking a couple huge shots from the Seattle Seahawks defense on Sunday, including a first half hit from Bobby Wagner that left him lying on the turf at CenturyLink Field.

    Especially good news for Dallas is that, though he came away with some sore ribs and a sore ankle, Romo’s always-talked-about back wasn’t affected.

    My back is fine,” Romo said after the 30-23 win, per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I think my rib cartilage may have something to say about it, but we’ll see.”

    Romo played through the big hits to put together a nice day against the vaunted Seattle defense. He finished 21 for 32 for 250 yards, two touchdowns and no picks. He doesn’t believe the bumps and bruises suffered in Seattle will affect his status going forward.

    “Yeah, a little rib thing and the ankle,” Romo said. “We’ll see. I’ve got to go through all of the junk tomorrow and figure that out. It has nothing to do with the back, though. All of this is gravy.”
