Still feeling some lingering pain from the bruised ribs suffered at the hands of the Giants in the season opener, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will take a painkilling shot before the Rams game this Sunday, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News has reported.
“I think tentatively we are planning on it just because of the nature of it and what we thought,” Romo said. “But we'll see as we get there.
“It does feel better now than it did last week. It'll just keep getting better and better this week.”
Romo also had a shot before last week’s 17-16 loss to the Chiefs and, as he mentions in his comments above, the ribs are feeling better and better. He suffered the injury just before halftime in the opener, when he was sandwiched between two Giants defenders, leaving him crumpled on the turf. Romo returned after half in that game, though, and has been going strong ever since.
According to Romo, the painkilling shots are just a part of the game for quarterbacks.
“I've gotten shot up before in the rib and it seems like it's a normal part of playing quarterback in the National Football League,” Romo said. “You go out there and you play. No one cares about…
“When you step on the field, it's all about winning. That's all that matters.”
