While Cowboys fans await the status of their quarterback Tony Romo has he battles through a swollen hand, there are some encouraging signs out of Valley Ranch that their signal caller will be able to play on Sunday.

Courtesy of Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News, thoughts from Pro-Bowl tight end Jason Witten on his injury-riddled friend and quarterback is that he's "pretty confident" he'll play.

Tony did good," Witten said. "I thought he was throwing the ball well. I couldn't tell any difference. You'd probably have to ask him about the details, but I thought from the receiving end of it, he was as good as he always is."

More from Witten:

"I would be hard pressed to see him not playing," Witten said. "Anyone who knows what he is about, knows he's going to play. I don't want to speak for him by any means, but I feel pretty confident he will."
