On the first of two-days off for the Dallas Cowboys, owner and general manager Jerry Jones is starting to provide a bit of cover for severely injured quarterback Tony Romo. Romo, who has a fractured rib, a punctured/collapsed lung and chance to be the NFL QB of the week, is one of several banged-up Cowboys heading into the Monday night slugest against the Washington Redskins.
"I don't know," Jones said. "I really don't. I understand the nature of the injury as much as you can without being in medicine. We'll just have to see how it goes. It has everything to do with just his ability to handle the pain, and we know he has a bunch of it."
