Los Angeles (AFP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has a broken bone in his back and could miss between six and 10 weeks of the season, the US media reported.
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to Eric Decker and the New York Jets' defense stifled Eli Manning and the New York Giants' starters in a 21-20 preseason loss Saturday night. Both teams' first-string offenses did very little in the last regular-season tuneup for most starters, but Fitzpatrick connected with Decker for a 22-yard score three plays after Darrelle Revis intercepted Manning on a pass intended for Odell Beckham Jr. in Giants territory in the second quarter.
Victor Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon in November 2014 and since has battled calf and groin injuries with constant setbacks, false starts and, worse yet, false hope. “It felt great just to be with my teammates and put this 80 jersey back on and to get the love of the crowd and the people again and go out there and be in position to make a few plays as well,” Cruz said via NJ.com.

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall will sit out the team's preseason game against the Giants, who will have Victor Cruz playing for the first time since 2014. There was no immediate reason given for Marshall not playing Saturday night and there was no known injury. Marshall was sitting on the Jets' bench in sweats and a long-sleeve T-shirt during pregame warmups.
Tony Romo is out with yet another back injury and it's unknown when he will return, although Dallas coach Jason Garrett says he expects his star quarterback to play this season. Garrett said Saturday that Romo sustained a broken bone in his back when he was hit from behind by Seattle's Cliff Avrill and slid awkwardly on the third play of a preseason game. Rookie Dak Prescott, a fourth-round pick who has had a strong preseason, is the presumed starter, although Garrett wouldn't acknowledge that either.
(The Sports Xchange) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered a broken bone in his back on the third play of Thursday night's preseason game and coach Jason Garrett said the injury would cost the veteran a chunk of the 2016 season. An MRI on Friday revealed Romo's back injury is much worse than anticipated, Garrett announced Saturday, two days after he was knocked out of the game against the Seattle Seahawks. "We're confident that he's going to be coming back and playing football for us this year," Garrett said but provided no timetable on Romo's possible return.

Dak Prescott will open season as starter.
When Tony Romo left the Dallas Cowboys’ preseason game with the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night after sliding awkwardly, getting crunched by Cliff Avril and then grabbing at his back, the team said the veteran quarterback was not allowed to return to the game on the coaches’ decision.
