Romo already home after back surgery


On Friday morning, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo underwent back surgery. By Friday night, he was home.

Peter King of told the story of Romo’s injury and eventual surgery on Friday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN. Per King, Romo already is home after undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disc.

King explained that Romo had both a bad back and a fever after Sunday’s win over the Redskins. Only three-plus weeks after beating the Raiders with the flu, Romo once again had flu-like symptoms.

Far more importantly, he had a back problem that has ended his season.

Here’s the clip from the show, featuring King’s explanation of the nuts and bolts resulting in Romo’s decision to undergo a surgical procedure only five days after he finished a game with the injury.
