Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will have another CT scan to determine how well his punctured lung is healing, ESPN Dallas reports.

He will not practice today, Ed Werder reports, but the Cowboys do expect him to play Monday night against the Washington Redskins. Romo, who already is in DeAngelo Hall’s sights, will wear a Kevlar vest and, ESPN reports, will likely be injected with a painkiller.

He suffered a broken rib and punctured lung when he was tackled by Carlos Rogers in Dallas’ victory Sunday in San Francisco.
