Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo emerged from Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings with a bruised left thumb, suffered in the second half of that contest, but the injury is not thought to be anything serious.
Romo was seen after the game Sunday with an ice pack on the hand, but according to the Dallas Morning News, the team has since deemed x-rays unnecessary and he is scheduled to practice as normal this week. The 29-year-old quarterback told reporters that he was able to return to the game after suffering the injury Sunday, with no problem.
Fans might remember that, in 2008, Romo missed three games after suffering a broken pinkie finger. The Cowboys were 1-2 over that span, while trotting out backups Brad Johnson and Brooks Bollinger, who are now retired and playing in the UFL, respectively. Needless to say, that Romo won’t require so much as x-rays is a much-needed bit of good news for fans.
