Romo out for a month
Posted Oct. 13 at 02:44 AM
Tony Romo will miss a month with a broken pinkie, according to a report in The Dallas Morning News.
The injury, originally believed to be sprain, is on his throwing hand. It throws a real wrench into the Cowboys’ offense because the team doesn’t have much behind him – 39-year-old Brad Johnson and journeyman Brooks Bollinger.
Dallas’ next three games are at St. Louis, home at Tampa Bay, then at the Giants. Dallas then has a bye, and Romo potentially could be ready for a Nov. 16 game at Washington.
Big injury for the Cowboys. Big injury in the NFC East.
Johnson will get the chance to start against the team that he quarterbacked to a Super Bowl win – Tampa Bay. He also might get to start against Washington, another team he has started for in the past.
The newspaper says the injury occurred when Romo was sacked in overtime. It also reports that the hamstring injury suffered by Felix Jones probably isn’t significant.
