Why Romo wasn't on injury report last week

December, 26, 2013
IRVING, Texas -- The NFL said it would look into the fact that Tony Romo was not on the injury report even though his back was bothering him leading into last week’s game against the Washington Redskins.

Coach Jason Garrett said he has yet to speak with anybody from the NFL offices, but offered up an explanation for Romo's absence from the injury report.

“He took every rep in practice,” Garrett said. “That’s what we based our injury reports on with all of our players. He practiced on Wednesday, practiced on Thursday, practiced on Friday and took every rep. I think everyone’s dealing with something this time of year. If you want to say, ‘How’s that elbow feeling?’ with every guy you’d have a pretty extensive injury report.”

In case you were wondering, Romo is on the injury report this week.
