Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will have x-rays taken on his ribs Monday, according to the San Antonio Express-News. Romo suffered an injury on Sunday night against the New York Giants, but the severity is not yet known.
Romo was sandwiched between three Giants on a play in the second quarter, forcing him to stay down and miss the remaining few minutes before heading to the locker room for halftime. Romo did return to start the third quarter and played the duration of the contest. He finished the game by completing 36 of his 49 passes for 263 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
The Cowboys quarterback has played through serious pain before, winning a game in Week Two against the San Francisco 49ers back in 2011 after puncturing his lung. Romo says the pain level is different, however.
"I wouldn’t put this one in that class," he said.
