Cowboys disagree on Romo’s injury


The Cowboys’ thrilling win over the Redskins didn’t come without cost.  Quarterback Tony Romo is injured.

But it’s not currently clear what the injury is.

In a contradiction that epitomizes the current state of the franchise, Ed Werder of ESPN says that owner/G.M. Jerry Jones claims that Romo has a back injury, while coach Jason Garrett says Romo has a foot injury.

Romo appeared to injure himself while spinning away from pressure in the second half.  Whatever the injury, he stayed in the game and delivered a win.

The real question is whether Romo and the Cowboys can delivered a win next week over the Eagles, in the Third Annual NFC East Championship game.

    The football gods demand recompense for Romo winning an important game in December.

    And here I thought it was a knee injury.

    The only team in the nfl team that allows their gm to speak after a game

    I feel bad for Cowboys fans. No fan should not have to deal with constant drama brought on by their team’s owner/general manager. Uff-dah.

    Back injury? Um I think Werder may have heard that one wrong. Clearly was a leg/foot injury of some sort.

    A: Nope.

    Jerry’s micro-managing has gone to a new level. Now he’s the team doctor also.

    I didn’t realize there was such a thing as a “thrilling win over the Redskins”.

  10. salscobrakai says: Dec 22, 2013 5:17 PM

    Ed Werder? Jerry Jones? I don’t believe anything until I hear it from Adam Schefter.

  11. litemater95 says: Dec 22, 2013 5:18 PM

    Clearly it wasn’t an “Organizational” decision…..

  12. dualprime says: Dec 22, 2013 5:19 PM

    This is stupid. Gotta be a way to take that team away from Mr Jones.

  13. 69finfan says: Dec 22, 2013 5:20 PM

    Ok, one says it’s a back injury, one says it’s a foot injury. Split the diff, it’s a knee.

  14. salscobrakai says: Dec 22, 2013 5:21 PM

    How is this “Cowboys” disagree? Sounds to me like Ed Werder and JJ disagree. Ed Werder needs better sources. Simple

  15. qwerty007qwerty007 says: Dec 22, 2013 5:22 PM

    …and now, in addition to being the owner, CEO, GM and chief bottle washer – JJ is senior medical officer.

    Pretty soon he’s gonna run out of space on his business cards.

    Cowboys fans say; at least out defense isn’t as bad as the skins

    Redskins fans say; that’s not saying much

    He plays better injured #49erscomback

    Incredible, the hate and envy Dallas receives even after a win. However when you are looking for Lombardi Trophies, it is easy to see where the envy comes from. America’s team won again today like it or not. If not, learn to swallow quietly! Go Cowboys! Jerry Jones bla bla bla.. Hehe

  19. mantastic54 says: Dec 22, 2013 5:35 PM

    Yeah he was limping because he hurt his back. Maybe Jerry needs to find somebody new to put in charge of cleaning his glasses

    Tony being Tony. #amazing #clutch #carryingTheEntireTeam

  21. kristucker3 says: Dec 22, 2013 5:42 PM

    At least Dallas has a chance to reach the playoffs ! Something to be said about that !

  22. mncowboysfan says: Dec 22, 2013 5:46 PM

    Ed Werder is only relevant when he gets an “un-named” Cowboy insider. The Schefter’s, Mort’s and Glazer’s have rendered him useless. He’s done this before and he’s been wrong more than right.

    He can only gets airtime when he’s “broken” a Cowboy story…here is how I imagine it went. Some assistant caught in the parking lot by Werder says if we don’t win every coach should be worried…turns into “sources says all Cowboys coaches are worried they be fired”!

    Try asking 32 locker rooms if they expect to win next week…would it be breaking news that “all 32 teams guaranty a win next week”. This is lazy Florio but frankly as a sucker that stops by from time to time, I’m not surprised in the least.

    As bad as we have been at times we’re the only NFC East team to play for that championship every one of those years. We’ve lost two of them but at least we were in it till the end.

  24. seabreezes51 says: Dec 22, 2013 5:52 PM

    I thought he pulled his groin. I think he pulls his groin a lot.

  25. upperdecker19 says: Dec 22, 2013 6:04 PM

    Must be the back of his foot??? Jerrahs easily confused in his advanced age

  26. 700levelvet says: Dec 22, 2013 6:15 PM

    The “Most mediocre franchise in sports”…

  27. blakeden says: Dec 22, 2013 6:17 PM

    Well it must be a back injury Jones owns the team. It can be what ever he wants it to be….Proof of this is when he has his head up his a__ he calls it being a good GM

  28. jbones77 says: Dec 22, 2013 6:20 PM

    Werder is just begging for a “controversy”.

  29. ontheteebox says: Dec 22, 2013 6:26 PM

    Tony Romo is clutch! America’s Team!

  30. speedlimit41 says: Dec 22, 2013 6:49 PM

    Cowboys 31 Eagles 20

  31. 7mantel says: Dec 22, 2013 6:58 PM

    That’s because it is all BS ,Cowboys are spin doctors ,injury was just in case they lost,they had an excuse !

  32. 7mantel says: Dec 22, 2013 7:38 PM

    Dallas was never voted America’s Team ,some dumb reporter back in the late 60’s called them that and the Cowboys ran with it !

  33. mitchellwall says: Dec 22, 2013 8:10 PM

    If I’m not mistaken, Romo mentioned during the post game interview that it was his back. I will take his word over JJ’s any day !

  34. mp802013 says: Dec 22, 2013 10:10 PM

    Does it Mattter?

  35. benotis03 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:54 AM

    JJ thinks he is all that running everything Cowboy style but he cant even wipe his own frickin glasses

  36. benotis03 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:55 AM

    a win is a win I say Cowboys by 3 over the Vickless Beagles

  37. jsrdc says: Dec 23, 2013 2:37 PM

    @ 7mantel,

    “Dallas was never voted America’s Team ,some dumb reporter back in the late 60′s called them that and the Cowboys ran with it !”

    First of all, it was in 1979, and it came from an NFL films production from Bob Ryan. They were named this by Ryan because every road game the Cowboys had, the # of Cowboy fans rivaled that of the home team.

    At least know what you are talking about if you are going to hate. It was an NFL film by NFL employees that gave them that nickname. At least the Cowboys aren’t throwing snow balls and booing Santa, or get called the “dream team” and end up going 4-12.

    The Eagles will murder the Cowboys defense!! LOL!! These people did not have a chance with horrible Romo!! LOL!! My goodness cowboy fans better turn off that tv if the want to keep it. Cause if not there will be so many broken tv screens during and after this game it will be pathetic!! It’s going to get ugly and ugly early!! That team needs cleaning from Gm to water Boys LOL!!! It will be 2030 when dallas probably be relevant again. Romo has until 2021 So that takes them at least to 2023 to even have a legit shot at anything. It is a horrible time for the Cowboy fans but you all will dread year after year its going to get uglier and uglier before it gets better thats for sure!! Jerry Jones has ruin that team !!! Romo just can’t win it. He sucks during this time. But I do have a good point here. Kyle Orton will be your best shot at anything of making it cause Romo is Not Called Thromo Choko For no reason LOL!! He can’t win the big game ever!!
