Chicago Bears to face Dallas Cowboys team without Tony Romo in Week 3 Sunday Night Football

Some bad news for the Dallas Cowboys this week will affect the Bears in the regular season.

Twitter and online NFL communities were rocked on Saturday when it was revealed by Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett that quarterback Tony Romo has suffered a broken bone in his back.

That is really awful news for Romo and the Cowboys, especially only a day after Jerry Jones was quoted as saying "Well, he's not injured. Coaches decision. Just, we'd seen enough." Called Romo's back "tight or jammed".

That means next man up for the Cowboys, which at this point looks like it will be rookie (and 4th round draft pick) Dak Prescott.

Romo is expected to miss several weeks, which means that in Week 3 of the regular season when the Cowboys host the Chicago Bears for Sunday Night Football, the Cowboys will be without their starting quarterback.

Sad news for Romo and the Cowboys organization. We'll see how this affects the game versus the Bears.

Stay tuned...
