Tony Romo injury update: Ready to go for fantasy owners in Week 3

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys gun slinger is no doubt going to suit up against the Rams this week. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (ribs) fully participated in practice all week and will start in the team's Week 3 game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Romo played through the same injury last week against the Kansas City Chiefs and posted a respectable 30 completions and 298 yards passing to go with a touchdown and 17-16 loss.

Fantasy impact: Considering that Romo has played with broken ribs in the past, being bruised and banged up is not a big deal. he'll be ready to go and should put up points against the Rams, who have given up the 10th most points to fantasy quarterbacks this season. also good news for Romo is that Dez Bryant (back) fully participated in practice himself on Friday, meaning Romo will have his top target. Though both players have struggled with different ailments over the years, they've been able to tough it out enough to stand as top fantasy talents at their respective positions.
