As it turns out, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was in more pain than we knew on Sunday.
In addition to the broken bones in his surgically repaired back and a knee that took a bad shot on a sack, Romo played against the Packers with damaged ligaments in the ring finger of his non-throwing hand.
“I wasn’t real comfortable there in the first half,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “So we ended up taping it up and it felt fine the rest of the way. That was obviously something that you just deal with.”
With the finger taped, Romo went 15 of 19 passing for 191 yards and two touchdowns in the 26-21 loss.
“You just get up and keep playing,” Romo said. “Everybody goes through it. Bunch of little stuff that’s just normal.”
