Tony Romo Injury: Cracked Rib No Obstacle In Overtime Win

A cracked rib did not prevent Tony Romo from leading the Dallas Cowboys to an overtime win against the San Francisco 49ers. Romo came back into the game late in the third quarter, after most starting asking how many weeks he would miss.

On his second series after returning he threw for more than 80 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown strike to Miles Austin to make it 21-24. That play had nothing on Romo’s first and only overtime pass, the Cowboys’ first offensive play of the extra frame.

With the ball on their own 22-yard line, Romo threw a 28-yard deep ball to Jesse Holley who added another 49 yards after the catch to set up the game winning field goal. Jesse Holley, you may remember, won Michael Irvin’s football reality show, “4th and Long.”

The gutsy play by the Cowboys quarterback represents a complete turnaround from his late interception, with the game tied, against the Jets last week.
