If there’s any way he physically can, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be playing in Sunday’s winner-take-all NFC East match-up with the Philadelphia Eagles.
In his weekly appearance on 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones recounted a phone call he received from Romo after the starting quarterback learned that his season was in some serious jeopardy.
“He was disappointed,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “If you know Tony you can imagine what a competitor he is. He doesn’t want to miss a snap or a play. He was very disappointed for his team. He said over and over again how bad ‘I feel for you and my teammates’. He said ‘I’m going to do everything I can to get on the field. We need to beat Philadelphia’. Pain is not a deterrent to Romo. That is proven. We have seen him do it. We have seen him win big. Tony will play with the pain. His doctor has to clear him.”
