The Little League World Series has become a big-time event. But the players who descend on Williamsport from all over the world for two weeks each August are still kids who like to have fun -- and for these ballplayers, that translates in any language.

From 2012-15, Dez Bryant averaged .239 fantasy points per snap when Tony Romo was his quarterback, compared to .144 when Romo was on the sidelines. For a player who usually plays 50-55 snaps per game, that's roughly a five fantasy point difference per contest.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has suffered a compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae, according to a source. While Jason Garrett wouldn't put a timeline on Romo's return, he is looking at 6-10 weeks to recover.

I've been on record already this summer about the NFC East race: the Washington Redskins are the most complete team in the division. Today's news on Cowboys QB Tony Romo only reinforced that position. Redskins will repeat as division champs.

In 2014, Tony Romo played with broken bone in back. Broken bones generally 6 weeks. Cowboys say no timetable other than not season ending.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tony Romo broke his bone in his back but did not rule the quarterback out of the season opener against the New York Giants. Romo hurt his back in the third play of Thursday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Rams cut to 75 players on Tuesday and 53 players on Saturday. Some on-the-bubble guys who can go a long way in securing a roster spot with a strong performance tonight, IMO: RB Aaron Green, WRs Duke Williams and Mike Thomas, TE Temarrick Hemingway, OL Isaiah Battle, DL Ian Seau, LB Josh Forrest.

Finally a touchdown for the Chiefs in the red zone, but it wasn't easy. They had to survive an Anthony Sherman fumble, a pass that Jeremy Maclin bobbled but caught and then a video review of the TD, a 1-yard run by Spencer Ware. Chiefs lead the Bears 13-0 late in the first half.

The Dolphins made several cuts today. WRs Matt Hazel and AJ Cruz and CB Brandon Harris were the key names. The team is now down to 78 players. They need to get down to 75 players on Tuesday.

Another Chiefs drive stalled deep in Chicago's end of the field and resulted in a field goal. Again, neither of Alex Smith's final two passes went into the end zone. Smith took a couple of big hits on the drive, one resulting in a helmet to helmet penalty on the Bears. Chiefs lead 6-0 in the second quarter.
