Romo Suffers Broken Finger

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has a broken finger on his throwing hand and could be out up to four
weeks.
Romo broke his right pinkie on the first play of overtime in the
30-24 loss at Arizona.
Coach Wade Phillips says the Cowboys don't know how long Romo
will be out.
Phillips says there won't be any surgery for Romo, who'll be
week to week, depending on quickly he heals.
The injury leaves the Cowboys (4-2) with 40-year-old Brad
Johnson as the starter for Sunday's game at St. Louis.
Johnson, who won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay, hasn't started a
game since 2006 in Minnesota.
Johnson quarterbacked Tampa Bay to the NFL championship in 2002,
and is the only member of the current Cowboys with a Super Bowl
championship ring.
He's been Romo's backup since last season and threw only 11
passes in 2007.
Neither Romo nor Johnson was in the locker room today when it
was open to reporters.
