Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo says he’ll be able to deal with the pain of playing with a fractured rib, and according to ESPN Dallas has declared himself “good to go” for Monday night’s meeting with the Washington Redskins.
Romo was listed as “limited” and “questionable” on Saturday’s injury report, following his only action of the week. Romo had missed both Thursday and Friday’s practices while nursing a fractured rib, which he suffered in last Sunday’s overtime victory over San Francisco.
But Romo said on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown that the pain is manageable.
“I’m getting better as the week goes on,” Romo said. “I’ll deal with it over the course of the next month, but I’ll be good to go this week.”
Romo is aware that he likely will be targeted because of the injury after Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said on Wednesday that he wanted to “put his helmet on whatever’s hurt.”
But Romo said he won’t let that deter him from playing.
“If he’s blitzing, that means he’s not covering,” Romo said. “So we’ll attack his guy he’s covering.”
