On Saturday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo banged his throwing hand into the helmet of Eagles defensive end Jason Babin. The hand ballooned, but all indications were/are that he’ll be able to play on Sunday night against the Giants.
Romo practiced Wednesday with no wrap or other devices on his hand. On Thursday, however, the hand was wrapped, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.
Romo officially was limited in practice Wednesday, yielding to Stephen McGee for some of the reps with the first-team offense. Per Archer, coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Romo’s hand was still swollen but “fairly functional.”
Romo widely is expected to play in Sunday night’s playoff play-in game. If he doesn’t, the Cowboys will have to rely on McGee and Chris Greisen, who’s currently on the team’s practice squad.
