ARLINGTON, TX – Field maintenance officials at AT&T Stadium, working diligently on the morning after a disappointing 20-17 loss by the Dallas Cowboys to their NFC East rival Washington Redskins, were still finding tiny fragments of the spine belonging to QB Tony Romo scattered about the turf near the 25-yard line where Romo was sacked by Redskins LB Keenan Robinson, according to observers on the scene today.

“Here’s a piece. Looks like part of an L3 vertebrae,” said field crew employee Sherman Mullner, before handing the backbone shard to an assistant. “Toss it in the bag with the others, willya?”

 

Romo, 34, has a history of back injuries, and has been operated on twice in the past two years, including a microdiscectomy last December that ended the signal caller’s 2013 season. It was unclear as of press time whether Romo’s latest injury might keep him out of the Dallas lineup for any period of time.

 

“Look, I think this is a chunk of cortical bone,” declared Mullner as he continued his task. “Keep searching, everyone. We need to find enough pieces to jam back into him in time for Wednesday practice.”

      Your comment left me … well, let’s say partially damp. Not full-on moist.
