Tony Romo’s Ribs Bruised; Not Broken

Cowboys_Tony_Romo_2012IRVING, Texas — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered bruised ribs in Sunday’s 36-31 win against the New York Giants but should not miss any practice time, according to sources.

X-rays showed Romo did not suffer any breaks resulting from hits by Giants defensive linemen Justin Trattou and Mathias Kiwanuka late in the second quarter. After the game, Romo said he would be fine and ready to play at Kansas City in Week 2.

“I’ve been told that they’re negative, which is a positive, meaning not broken, so that’s a good thing,” coach Jason Garrett said of Romo’s X-rays.
