Tony Romo Injury: Should Cowboys Fans Start to Worry?

In a "oh no, not again moment" for the Dallas Cowboys organization and fans alike, quarterback Tony Romo left the game against the San Francisco 49ers in the third quarter with an apparent rib injury.

The full extent is not known at this time, but the Cowboys season will be in serious doubt once again if Romo misses any significant time.

Replacement Jon Kitna gave fans a glimpse of the up-and-down season to come, throwing an interception as he took the field in Romo's place and then led Dallas on a lengthy touchdown drive a few series later.

To all the fantasy owners who took Romo thinking you would get a player with a lot to prove, you might need to be looking elsewhere if you don't have a solid back up for Romo at the moment.

This will also affect fantasy owners who have Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, as no Romo equals a significant drop off in the two wideout's production.

Luckily rib injuries tend to take less time to heal, but with Romo's injury luck, I know the Cowboys faithful will be holding their breath until an update on the severity of the injury.
