Like many people expected, Tony Romo is active for tonight’s game vs. the Redskins and is set to start, but he’s probably going to have to prepare for some more pain.
According to ESPN, Romo warmed up with receiver Jesse Holley a few hours before kickoff (he wasn’t wearing his flak jacket apparently). Afterward, Romo told Ed Werder that he thinks his velocity will be fine once he takes a pain-killing injection for his fractured rib after Dallas finishes its warmups.
Now, all he has to do is watch out for Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who vowed to target Romo’s midsection.
But just for good measure, we’ll show you again how the flak jacket that’s protecting Romo’s ribs can help deter torso shots. That is, if somebody took a baseball bat to Romo’s chest.
