ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo left the Dallas Cowboys‘ game against the Washington Redskins in the third quarter on Monday night with an unspecified injury.

The quarterback was leveled on a blitz by Redskins inside linebacker Keenan Robinson with 7:59 remaining in the third quarter. The team did not announce the nature of the injury Romo sustained, but he lay on the turf for several minutes before being helped to the sideline.

He spent the rest of the third quarter and most of the fourth in the locker room before returning to the sidelines with about 5 minutes remaining in the game. He eventually talked his way back into the game with 1:52 remaining.

Romo has been experiencing pain in his back, and even underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc last December. He has said recently that it wasn’t until he was able to play in a few regular-season games that he has started to feel completely comfortable.

Brandon Weeden, who was signed during the offseason to serve as Romo’s backup, entered the game at the start of the Cowboys‘ next offensive series.

Romo had completed 13 of 21 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown — a 5-yard throw to Dez Bryant with 4:45 left in the second quarter — when he left the game.
