On Monday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo applied a pair of pain injections to his fractured rib in order to play against the Redskins.
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, he may need another pain shot in order to play against the Lions on Sunday.
“I would say this, there’s a test that just goes, come over here (lightly tap his rib area) and see how hard you can do it until I feel it,” Romo said after Thursday’s practice. “And if I feel it I’m going to need it.”
He also said if he gets a hard tap to the rib area and doesn’t feel as much pain, he won’t need the injection.
Romo doesn’t know how severe the crack in his rib is but, “it’s a fracture. It is what it is. It either feels better or it doesn’t. It’s nothing really much more.”
