Tony Romo Declares Himself Fit To Play Monday Night

Tony Romo visited with ESPN’s pregame Sunday NFL Countdown and assured that he would be ready to play Monday night when the Cowboys host the Redskins.

I’m getting better as the week goes on. I’ll deal with it over the course of the next month, but I’ll be good to go this week.

“It” is the cracked rib that will take several more weeks to heal, but the Cowboys said that his small lung puncture had healed just four days after the injury, according to another CT Scan.

Jason Garrett has seemed confident that Romo would play this week, despite the injuries and Romo’s official status as ‘questionable’ for the game. Romo did not practice on Thursday or Friday, but he did participate on Saturday.

The Redskins typically play Romo well, holding him to 210 yards passing per game and averaging right at an interception. They’ve only sacked him seven times in eight games, though, and they will want to hit him to make him uncomfortable. Romo is averaging 344 yards per game this season, despite missing a quarter against the 49ers.
