IRVING, Texas -- Dallas is listing Tony Romo as questionable for Sunday after he didn't participate in the final practice before the Cowboys trip to St. Louis.
Romo broke the pinkie finger on his throwing hand late in last
week's overtime loss to Arizona and originally was ruled out for up
to a month. He told coaches earlier this week that despite the
injury he wanted to play against the Rams.
Romo hasn't commented all week. And neither has Brad Johnson,
the 40-year-old backup who will get his first NFL start since 2006
with Minnesota if Romo can't go.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a radio interview earlier
today that there was no chance Romo could reinjure the pinkie
because of the cast-like protection on his hand.
Jones also said the decision if Romo will play will depend on
how the quarterback feels Sunday.
Coach Wade Phillips says it's possible Romo could be active for
the game without starting.
