Swelling has gone down in Romo’s hand

The Cowboys don’t plan to sign another quarterback to the roster because they are so confident in Tony Romo’s health.

Just two days after Romo’s injury against the Eagles, swelling has already gone in Romo’s hand.

Asked Monday if Romo could grip a football, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Romo had a “relatively firm handshake.” So that’s good to know.

Further tests on Romo’s hand confirmed he suffered no breaks. He’s fully expected to start Sunday night against the Giants and it sounds like Romo may be able to practice on Wednesday.

    I hope Tony can finish of a very strong season “by him” and carry Dallas to the playoffs. The D has been a disappointment and Tony has been the reason they even are in contention.

    So he’ll be a “warrior” for playing, and have a built in excuse when he fails. Perfect.

    I think the problem in Dallas is the GM, not the QB.

    Good news. The Giants d line get a chance to end Romo’s career, either physically or with a loss.

    Happy new year, Tony.

    Yes, the problem in Dallas is not the swelling in Romo’s hand, it’s the swelling in Jones’ head.

    Huh no interviews with Romo himself, just the coach. Smells fishy to me. Doesn’t matter anyhow with JPP playing lights out and Tuck finally healthy its not going to matter who’s playing QB.

    Firm handshake my ass. We all saw his hand. It’s been 2 days. Trust me it still hurts.

    And you probably still believe Austin lost the ball in the lights!

    “And you probably still believe Austin lost the ball in the lights!”

    Brother, I’ve been bleeding blue probably for decades before you were even a sparkle in your mommy’s eye. Do the names Bob Tucker, Norm Snead, and Spider Lockhart mean anything to you? Are you telling me Eli never missed an open receiver? Brady? Brees? They all have. I can’t stand the Cowboys, Texans in general, and the only part of Texas I find semi-tolerable is Austin. Doesn’t mean Romo’s a drama queen or a bad QB. Clearly, you never had the misfortune of working for an organization where the owner is a blithering idiot and hires all his kids to help make things worse. Be thankful.

    He should soak it in cider.
