Dallas Cowboys' fans are holding their breath right now, hoping that they do not see a repeat of last season.
The Cowboys' starting quarterback was playing in limited action against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, and was supposed to be in the game for a couple of series. However on Romo's third play he was hit from behind by Seahawks' defender Cliff Avril, and the hit did not look good.
Romo escapes the pocket pressure, only to take an awkward looking hit, leaving him clutching his lower back in pain.
NFL Media's Steve Wyche reported that Romo took some simulated snaps and threw a few passes on the sideline after the injury. He did not return to the game, even after stretching.
If Romo were to go down to a serious injury, the workload would be passed to Dak Prescott, who has performed admirably thus far in the preseason.
Tony Romo appeared to hurt his back. Great block by Zeke, but certainly not what the Cowboys want to see pic.twitter.com/21rt9cUjp2— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) August 26, 2016
