After missing practice on Thursday and Friday with a broken rib, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was seen throwing passes with helmet on during the portion of Saturday’s practice that was open to the media, per Rainer Sabin on the Dallas Morning News.
The Cowboys host the Redskins to cap Week Three, on Monday night.
Romo appeared on Friday’s NBC Sportstalk (VERSUS, 6:00 p.m. ET), telling Russ Thaler, Peter King, and I that Romo is taking it day by day, but he didn’t sound like a guy who plans to stand on the sidelines for the game.
He also said he’ll be wearing a Kevlar vest to protect his ribs from further injury, something he won’t need if he’s standing on the sidelines for the game.
Romo suffered the injury during the first half of Sunday’s game against the 49ers, returning in the second half to lead the Cowboys back from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit and to an overtime win, thanks to a 77-yard pass to Jesse Holley.
Holley will likely be needed on Monday night. While receiver Dez Bryant (thigh) was seen at Saturday’s practice, Miles Austin (hamstring) was absent once again.
