A lot of people felt that the Cowboys would go after a veteran QB with the injury to Tony Romo, but ESPN’s Ed Werder says not so fast.
The reporter states that the Cowboys have decided not to pursue signing a veteran quarterback at this time, a strong indication that the team believes Romo should be capable of both starting and throwing effectively against the New York Giants on Sunday night in a game that will determine which team wins the NFC East and advances to the playoffs.
“He will be fine,” another source said.
Romo suffered a bruised hand when he struck it on Jason Babin’s helmet on the fourth offensive play of the team’s 20-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
Romo was unable to return because he could not properly grip the ball. He stood on the sideline with his hand heavily bandaged for the remainder of the game. The hand appeared badly swollen as Romo departed the stadium without making his customary appearance in the interview room.
