Tony Romo rib injury minor; fantasy value stable for Week 2


Romo's latest injury scare is a minor one.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered injured ribs in the team's 36-31 win over the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football, but x-rays came back negative, according to CBS in Dallas.

Romo will reportedly be able to play in Dallas' Week 2 game on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Cowboys' quarterback returned to action on Sunday after suffering the injury, so it appears to be just a minor scare.

Fantasy spin: Romo can be a risky fantasy option because of his tendency to get injured and turn the ball over. On Sunday night, however, he gutted through his injury and took care of the football pretty well for the Cowboys.

Going forward, Romo's injury is worth monitoring, if only because he has had issues with his ribs in the past. It's a dangerous injury for a quarterback to deal with, and Romo hasn't exactly had the best protection in recent years.
