Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo will play tonight against the Washington Redskins--at least according to Romo himself, he will.
Romo made an appearance on ESPN’s NFL Sunday Countdown on Sunday, and told the hosts that, though the injury will have some lingering effects as the season goes on, it will not keep him out of the team’s home opener.
"I'm getting better as the week goes on," Romo said, via ESPN Dallas. "I'll deal with it over the course of the next month, but I'll be good to go this week."
Romo is officially listed as questionable for Monday night with a fractured rib. He also suffered a punctured lung in the week two victory over the 49ers, but the lung has since healed, a CT scan showed last week. Romo and Jason Witten, who suffered rib bruising against San Francisco will wear kevlar rib protectors in the Washington game.
