Redskins Vs. Cowboys: Tony Romo, Felix Jones Injuries Likely To Heal By Next Monday

While it appears the Dallas Cowboys will be without wide receiver Miles Austin for next Monday's showdown with the Washington Redskins, they received better news on the injuries to quarterback Tony Romo and running back Felix Jones. Both are expected to play as of right now, according to a report by ESPN Dallas.

An MRI Monday revealed that Romo only had one fractured rib, which was the same diagnosis he had on Sunday. According to the report, Romo is expected to play on Monday.

Romo will receive extra treatment throughout the week but said after the game he would be able to play next Monday against the Washington Redskins since he was able to finish the game Sunday. He could wear extra protection for his ribs.

Jones, meanwhile, suffered a shoulder injury, and the fear in Dallas was that he would miss some time with a separated shoulder. However, according to the report, he merely dislocated the shoulder and is expected to be in the lineup on Monday. Jones played through the injury with a harness on Sunday.
