Romo, Dez questionable, Austin out for Monday night

Apparently, the “questionable” label no longer reflects the kind of coin-flip uncertainty that it implies.

With two of the NFC East’s marquee quarterbacks squaring off against separate division rivals this week, both are listed as 50-50 possibilities for playing.  Even though everyone expects them to play.

Eagles quarterback Mike Vick is questionable with a concussion for Philly’s home opener against the Giants, and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been listed as questionable with a broken rib for his team’s home opener against the Redskins.

Also questionable for the Cowboys are receiver Dez Bryant (thigh), running back Felix Jones (shoulder), and kicker David Buehler (groin).

The Cowboys have scratched receiver Miles Austin, who injured his hamstring late in regulation of Sunday’s 27-24 overtime win over the 49ers.  Joining Austin as out are guard Derrick Dockery (knee) and cornerback Orlando Scandrick (ankle).

The injured Cowboys most likely to play, given the “probable” label, are cornerback Terence Newman (groin), center Phil Costa (knee), cornerback Mike Jenkins (shoulder), guard Bill Nagy (neck), and linebacker Anthony Spencer (shoulder).

Romo has started eight career games against the Redskins, with each team winning four times.  Six of the games were decided by six or fewer points.

    Romo is questionable with a severely gashed lung.

    Bryant is out (again) with an ever so slightly bruised hangnail.

    This is actually very sad!

    The Cowboys are my least favorite NFL team by a wide margin. Having said that, I’m always entertained by the childish optimism of many Skins fans. Talking smack is something most normal people cease when they leave Jr High. Too see a Skins’ fan talking smack is beyond pathetic.

    “Redskin flavor barb q”

    In other words, “Tangy Loser” flavor.

    These injuries are killer, and there are only so many reality tv stars who can step in and make plays. Kim Kardashian can’t run a fade route to save her life…

    Waxxx…I really wish there was a age/iq restriction on this site so we wouldn’t have to read moronic comments like this..im guessing your 16 which means you have never seen anything but mediocrity from the redskins…you should learn about the NFL and then talk a little trash…don’t just repeat what you hear on Redskins nation and the lavar arrington show.

    Way to go, Waxxxx4321…..I’m on your side, but jeez, I kinda wish we had WR’s like they got…………otherwise, though, Heck Yeah bring it CowGurlzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  8. 07black350z says: Sep 24, 2011 4:23 PM

    while our runningbacks are average due to our offensive line woes, our recievers are top notch (dez,austin,witten)…and there is no “little league” for the nfl…you might have been thinking of pop warner…but im guessing you probably never played football..while a little trash talk is good for one of the best rivalry in the nfl, at least come with something factual..any idiot can scream for their team

    Is there any word on linebacker Sean Lee? Anyone??? HELP!

  10. skins23 says: Sep 24, 2011 4:44 PM

    Don’t wanna hear the injury excuse if the Skins win. Nobody ever made note of all the injuries we had to the O-line and others over the years when we lost. Not to mention, Skins lost their best draft pick/preseason player Jenkins for the year, Landry hasn’t played yet, Cooley isn’t healthy, Buchanon hasn’t played yet, and our secondary got banged up big time last week.

    No excuses. Ask the 2010-11 SB Champion GB Packers.

    One joke team vs another. NOthing sadder than DC and DAL fans yapping at each other. Meanwhile the class of the NFL, New Orleans and New England will be playing in the superbowl.

    One of the most important things to being a good pro is the ability to stay healthy. I don’t think it’s a total crap shoot as to if and when you get hurt. Some guys learn how to absorb hits or make decisions that prevent them getting injured. Apparently Romo hasn’t learned this art yet and Dez Bryant is just an idiot with incredible athletic talent and will probably never learn it.

    the Cowboys suck..they always have ,Americas f a g team..i dont even know how they have a stadium…they need to tear it down and turn it into a horse Lot…cowboys are bunch of losers…look at that gay blue gray uniform..thats something a f a g would wear….losers…

    It’s always a tough game between the Cowboys and Indians. I’m glad football is back! Hail!!

  15. dbldmr says: Sep 24, 2011 5:22 PM

    I guess if Romo had eyes in the back of his head he might have seen the hit coming.

    Joe Theisman. Your greatest QB. Besides Rex Grossman of course.

    Runner up to Phili for what? Quickest first round exit? Andy Reid “owning” the division for 10 years means about as much that treadmill he’s owned for 10 years. It probably makes him feel great thinking about it, but in the end the results speak for themself.

    REDSKIN fans are like BENGAL fans! REDSKINS are NFL equivalent of the BENGALS! LAST PLACE all the time!

    The pressure of expectation is all on Dallas. If they win, they were supposed to win. But if they lose, there will be great wailing and gnashing of teeth, concern about injury policies, Jerrah down on the sideline, etc…..Washington should be mentally loose and just go for it, nothing to lose, but for Dallas it’s almost a must-win….
