SEATTLE -- Three plays were all it took for Dallas to get yet another injury scare surrounding Tony Romo.The quarterback lasted just 90 seconds into the Cowboys 27-17 preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night before leaving with what appeared at first to be a potentially significant injury, but ended up being minor.Romo was tackled from behind by Seattles Cliff Avril on the third play from scrimmage as Romo scrambled from the pocket.He immediately grabbed at his back, crumpled on the field while trainers sprinted from the Dallas sideline and images of Romos injury problems from last year immediately flashed to mind.Turned out it was all just a scare. Romo walked off the field without assistance, threw passes on the sideline and lobbied for a return to the game. Dallas coach Jason Garrett opted to play it safe and Romo donned a baseball hat as a spectator the rest of the night.That was a perfect timed situation. I was going into the slide and he obviously caught me from behind, Romo said.In a weird way I feel good about the fact that was probably as tough of a hit I took on the back as Ive had in the last five years. In that regard I feel very lucky that it could hold up and keep going.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones immediately felt the anxiety, but said there should be no issue with Romo being ready for Week 1. Romo said his back felt fine other than typical soreness.I just think everyone had a scare, Jones said. And he was not hurt. He said he wasnt hurt. He wanted to go back in. He could have gone back in and played but I praise Jason. It was his decision.Avril said he checked with some Dallas players to make sure Romo was OK.I thought he was going to try to throw it so I tried to swipe down and get his arm but I guess the force just, whatever, messed his back up. ... Im never in the business of trying to hurt anybody, Avril said.What Romo saw from the sideline was an impressive initial flash from rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and a solid performance by backup QB Dak Prescott against one of the top defenses in the NFL.Elliott rushed for 48 yards on seven carries, including a 13-yard run where he knocked Seattle safety Kam Chancellor backward.Prescott was solid playing against most of Seattles starting defense, finishing 17 of 23 for 116 yards, including a 17-yard TD pass that Jason Witten snatched away from K.J. Wright.I think I adjusted really well, Elliott said. It makes my job easier when I play behind that great offensive line. I can only think of one run where someone tackled me that wasnt on the second level.Russell Wilson and Seattles No. 1 offense played into the second half, scoring on four of its final five possessions including a pair of TD tosses by Wilson.He found Paul Richardson on a perfectly placed 9-yard crossing route in the second quarter, then improvised, spun, scrambled and hit Tyler Lockett on a 9-yard strike midway through the third quarter on his final play.Wilson finished 16 of 21 for 192 yards, while Christine Michael averaged 8.3 yards per carry as Seattle got its running game going in the second half.Christine looked great tonight, I really thought he looked like a beautiful runner out there, hitting it and making really decisive cuts and stuff that got him in the secondary, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Theres no reason to think otherwise, hes going to be like that for us.ROOKIE WATCHCowboys: Prescott is 39 of 50 for 454 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in his three preseason games. I was ready to go at any point, Prescott said.Seahawks: Third-round pick C.J. Prosise got his first action of the preseason after being slowed by a hamstring injury. Prosise rushed for 23 yards on four carries and has been viewed as Seattles best third-down option.CLOSER TO RETURNINGSeahawks TE Jimmy Graham did not play, but went through a full pregame workout and team warmups as he continues his recovery from a major knee injury.INJURY REPORTSeahawks: WR/TE Tanner McEvoy suffered a minor groin injury in the second half. ... CB Marcus Burley missed the game due to a groin injury.QUOTABLEIt felt great to finally get out there in a full speed game against somebody thats not our own team. It was great to get behind that offensive line, get that game feel, get my first real reps as a pro football player, Elliott said. D Onta Foreman Youth Jersey. However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1.

Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short.

Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. England Women 187 for 5 (Beaumont 82, Winfield 74) beat Pakistan Women 119 for 7 (Asmavia Iqbal 35, Hazell 2-18) by 68 runsScorecardTammy Beaumont and Lauren Winfield produced another dazzling opening partnership of 147 - England Womens highest stand in T20s - to set up a 68-run victory in the first T20 at Bristol.Beaumont, who set a new record for runs in a three-match ODI series with her tally of 342 against Pakistan Women, made 82 off 53 balls and Winfield 74 off 45 to lead England to their highest total in the format. It followed their 235-run opening stand in the second ODI at New Road when they both hit centuries.Theres a lot more freedom, Beaumont said of her form and the teams success. To go out there and do it, and know that if you fail it is not going to be the end of the world.There were nine double-figure scoring overs in Englands innings, the highest being 19 off the third bowled by Maham Tariq, which kickstarted the charge. Beaumont launched the first six of the innings with a delightful straight drive which crashed into the sightscreen at the Ashley Down End.Beaumont reached her fifty off 30 balls, and having moved to 82 with nearly five overs remaining had time to score Englands first T20I century before falling lbw as she attempted a reverse-sweep, meaning Charlotte Edwards unbeaten 92, against Australia at Hobart, remained Englands best.As in the one-day series, Beaumonts speed through the ball, power generated with a strong whip of wrists, was a standout feature of her batting.When Mark Robinson spoke on the day that Heather Knight was appointed captain, he picked out Beaumont and Winfield as players he thought had immense ability to strike the ball but had not been able to translate that to the international stage.I needed to work on getting the ball behind me more, in T20 and it was nice that it came off today, Beaumont said. The coach also said that he wanted me to go outt there and strike the ball hard.dddddddddddd. I have been able to do that too. The other thing is letting it come to me a bit more. A century was in the back of my mind but I will take 82. It would have been nice to have got a hundred, but Im not worried.I have been working really hard on my batting. I had a tough start to my career but its coming right now and my Dad always said to me Remember you start on zero in each innings. So, I think about that, I think about getting off the mark and then I think about building from there.Like Beaumont, Winfield struck 10 fours and also a six off Sadia Yousuf and her final score equalled her career-best, having also made 74 against South Africa in 2014. She had a couple of close shaves; there was a tight stumping appeal on 15 when the third umpire adjudged she had a fraction of boot behind the line and then a close run-out chance on 31.At 146 for 0 in 15 overs, 200 was within reach for England but the last five overs were not quite as fluent as the first 15. The 16-20-over block had fewer runs - 41 - than the other five-over breakdowns.The final over included a team hat-trick for Pakistan as Nat Sciver edged a swipe, Danni Wyatt was run out and Heather Knight feathered a reverse-sweep to the keeper.A target of 189 was, unsurprisingly, well out of reach for Pakistan and Englands bowling was not stretched in defending the target. Four of the wickets fell to full-tosses, the third of them giving 17-year-old debutant Sophie Ecclestone, a left-arm spinner, her first international wicket when Sidra Ameen picked out deep midwicket.Asmavia Iqbal struck some powerful blows to finish as top-scorer -- including the one six of the innings, which was Pakistans first of the tour - before being bowled by Danielle Hazell in the final over.
