Tony Romo, right around the time he injured his footbaack, or the back of his foot, or ...

What we know is that late in the Dallas Cowboys' 24-23 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo suffered what appeared to be a leg injury after he spun out of pressure one of several times in the game. Romo played through a considerable limp for a few downs, but was able to stay in the game, and threw the game-winning touchdown pass to running back DeMarco Murray with 1:08 left.

The win kept the Cowboys alive for the postseason, and next Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles will be a winner-take-all when it comes to the NFC East. That would seem to indicate a harmonious front in the Dallas front office, but things are never as they seem in Big D.

After the game, according to ESPN's Ed Werder, team owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett could not seem to agree on the nature of Romo's injury.

Jerry Jones says Tony Romo strained his back. Jason Garrett says it is a foot injury

Jerry Jones says Tony Romo had back issue all week, aggravated it but will play vs Eagles. Romo said hit triggered and in different place LY

That's "LY" for "last year," and a big "WTF" for everything else. Of course, Stephen Jones, Jerry's son and the team's Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice President, and Director of Player Personnel, also has a history of diagnosing the injuries of his players. So perhaps the younger Jones will come up with another body part that ails Romo. We can only wait and see.
