Cowboys' Tony Romo misses practice with tight back, fine for Sunday

Thursday September 18th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed practice on Wednesday due to tightness in his back, but said he will be ready to go on Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

Romo had back surgery in December to repair a herniated disk, and never participated in more than two consecutive days during training camp.

From ESPN Dallas:

“It’s going to pop up,” Romo said. “I’m sure it’ll happen throughout the rest of the season. You’ll see a day here or there. It’s the same as the arm. Sometimes your arm gets [tired]. It’s just obviously more talked about because of having surgery on the back. You play this game.

It’s a very violent, physical game, and you throw the ball a lot and you do all these things. Sometimes it’s just that tightness stuff comes up. You prefer obviously to do everything 100 percent of the time, but you can’t always do that. I’ll be fine. I’ll be good to go [Thursday]."

Romo has been sacked seven times through the first two games of the season. He is 42-of-66 for 457 yards and two touchdowns and has thrown three interceptions.
