Redskins Vs. Cowboys: Tony Romo Injury Still Leaves Him Uncertain To Play

Tony Romo's injury status for the Dallas Cowboys' game against the Washington Redskins next Monday night remains uncertain. Romo had a punctured lung and one broken rib last week, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show that he's still not sure if Romo will be ready to play. Via the Fort Werth Star Telegram.

"I don't know," Jones said. "I really don't. I understand the nature of the injury as much as you can without being in medicine. We'll just have to see how it goes. It has everything to do with just his ability to handle the pain, and we know he has a bunch of it."

On Monday, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he didn't see any reason why Romo would not play, but that was prior to the reports that Romo also had a punctured lung. The Cowboys' quarterback suffered the injury in the team's win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. He momentarily left the game, but returned to lead Dallas' comeback.
