The Patriots aren’t the only team that recently got good news from the league office regarding a potential violation of the injury-reporting rules. The Cowboys, who inadvertently put themselves under the 345 Park Avenue microscope regarding Tony Romo’s back injury, also received an all-clear from the powers-that-be.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells PFT that the Cowboys were informed last month that the league’s review concluded that there was no violation.

The problem arose after a Week 16 game at Washington, in which Romo tweaked his back and ultimately required surgery. Both Romo and owner Jerry Jones suggested after the win that Romo entered the game with a pre-existing back injury. A pre-existing back injury that hadn’t been disclosed on any injury reports.
