It was reported this week that, for the second week in a row, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will take a painkilling shot to the ribs prior to the start of Sunday’s matchup with the St. Louis Rams in Arlington. That would seem to indicate that Romo isn’t quite at full health, yet, after suffering the bruised ribs in the Week One win over the Giants.
But not so, at least not according to Jerry Jones. Jones was asked on the G-Bag Nation show on 105.3-FM The Fan on Thursday to describe Romo’s health level using a percentage. Jones didn’t hesitate much.
“A hundred,” he said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t know that any player feels good after the first ballgame. But he’s in good shape.”
In all fairness, Romo does seem to be doing well. He’s been a full participant in practice this week, and even in the week leading up to the Chiefs game, there was never any real doubt that he’d play. Romo has also said that his ribs are slowly but surely improving, at least from a comfort standpoint.
