Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered two cracked ribs and a punctured lung playing against the San Francisco 49ers. Romo left the game mid-way through, but returned to lead the Cowboys back to an overtime victory. Romo is listed as questionable on the injury report after practicing for the first time on Friday. Romo did some light throwing, but is still expected to start.
While Romo is showing his toughness by playing with the rib injury and planning to play this week, he'll be limited offensively without wide receiver Miles Austin and with receiver Dez Bryant being listed as questionable. The Redskins are giving up over 235 yards in the air per game so far, but they've sacked the opposing team's quarterbacks 7 times. How well the Cowboys offensive line pass protects for Romo will determine his effectiveness more so than his receivers. Romo, not matter how tough he is, won't be able to take many shots to the midsection.
