Amidst varying reports on whether he would need to undergo surgery on the injury, as he did in 2010, the veteran has alleviated some concerns with a message posted on his official Twitter account this afternoon.


Confirming that he wouldn't be going under the knife in the near future, Romo also had a motivational message to the Dallas faithful.

Romo's message then must be seen as a positive. And it is fair to say Cowboys fans have reacted in that manner since their hero posted the message.

At the time of writing, Romo's message already had 5,000 retweets despite only being online for 10 minutes, with the majority of responses offering their support:
