The Dallas Cowboys and all of its fans are breathing a huge sigh of relief this morning as starting quarterback Tony Romo is OK after taking an awkward hit during the team’s third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Romo took the hit from Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril on the third play of the preseason game and was riling in pain afterward. It didn’t look good at all. However, he told the Morning News that he feels fine and that there wasn’t a need for any MRIs or X-rays.
Romo tried to return to the game after it was determined that he was OK, but none of the Dallas coaches were going to take that chance. “The fact we dodge a bullet is a good thing. I also think probably from the back being stronger allowed me to probably get through that,” he said.
Romo is recovering from a broken collarbone that kept him out since the Thanksgiving Day game last November.
