\According to reports coming out of Dallas late Wednesday afternoon, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, has told coaches he feels he can play this weekend against the St. Louis Rams. This comes just two days after doctors diagnosed him with a broken pinkie and stated he would be out four weeks with the injury.
Tony Romo who did not participate in practice on Wednesday did go through throwing drills on the sidelines. According to sources he did not seem to lose much velocity or accuracy on his throws. Also Romo said he felt good and the pain was minimal.
While it would be great to see Romo suit up on Sunday and get to work building a relationship with his new weapon Roy Williams, one has to think this is just too soon. Especially considering the opponent. The St. Louis Rams are coming off an upset victory against the Washington Redskins last week, but they cannot be expected to maintain their current winning ways. This is the perfect game to let Romo rest and heal that finger a little bit longer. Let him sit and bring him back the next week.
