Suffers shoulder injury
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was
drilled into the turf on his left shoulder early in the second
quarter Monday night, forcing him to the locker room for X-rays.
Romo fired a pass to Miles Austin, then took the hard hit from
linebacker Michael Boley, who was running at him unblocked, going
practically full speed. Romo was down, flat on his back, until
trainers came to his aid.
Romo took every snap last season - making Jon Kitna the NFL's
only No. 2 quarterback not to play - and had done so through five
games this season.
Kitna's first pass was swatted down at the line. His first
series ended with a field goal that stretched Dallas' lead to 13-7.
Romo had been 5 of 7 for 39 yards with a touchdown pass.
The Cowboys also lost defensive end Jason Hatcher to a groin
