X-rays on Monday showed that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered bruised ribs in the Week One win over the Giants, according to the Dallas Morning News, but he’s expected to play in the Week Two match-up with the Chiefs in Kansas City this week.
The injury occurred late in the second quarter, when Romo was hit simultaneously by two Giants defenders. He came out of the game but returned after half, and played the final two quarters in some apparent discomfort. According to the report in the Morning News, Romo did not require a shot.
There’s a chance Romo will wear a rib protector against the Chiefs, similar to the one he wore back in 2011, after suffering fractured ribs and a punctured lung in a Week Two win over the 49ers.
