Cowboys QB Tony Romo suffered broken bone in back

The NFC East race was thrown a loop when the Cowboys announced their QB suffered another significant injury.

Another year, another injury for Tony Romo.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback suffered a broken bone in his back during Thursday's preseason game, the team announced Saturday.

Wow. Wow. 

Washington, Dallas and the New York Giants were seemingly in something of a dead heat for the NFC East title entering the season with Philadelphia looming as a wild card. Take out Romo and, for now, take out the Cowboys.

Dallas' 2015 season quickly went south when Romo suffered a collarbone injury. The Cowboys had already lost backup QB Kellen Moore with a season-ending injury.

Rookie Dak Prescott impressed in preseason, but the Cowboys will likely seek a veteran option immediately.

As a reminder, the Redskins host the Cowboys in Week 2. They may already benefit from an opponent's absence in Week 1. Pittsburgh won't have Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell (suspension) when it faces Washington at FedEx Field on Sept. 12.
