Tony Romo strains back, expects to be fine: Fantasy implications

Kevin C. Cox

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo strained his back on the game's final play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he strained his back on the final play of Sunday night's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Romo, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, was seen walking gingerly in the locker room before he changed clothes. The Cowboys quarterback indicated that the injury was not serious.

Romo finished the night with 321 passing yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: It's a good thing this isn't serious as Romo turned in a very solid fantasy game, except for the fact he didn't get the Cowboys into the end zone until the fourth quarter. He was at his best on the late scoring drive by patiently extending plays and directing receivers.

This is the same quarterback, however, who has thrown 13 interceptions in the first eight games of the season. Romo may have to throw more until DeMarco Murray is ready to return and fantasy will have to take the good with the bad. He is a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most weeks.
