Tony Romo says he's OK to play next week

T. Romo said he'd play next week, despite his hand injury (AP).

By Josh Katzowitz

A potentially scary moment for the Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo in their 20-7 loss to the Eagles shouldn’t keep Romo out of next week’s potential playoff clincher vs. the Giants.

That’s what Romo told reporters after the game today after it was discovered, via the Cowboys website, that Romo didn’t break any bones in his hand (but only broke blood vessels) when he hit his hand against the helmet of Eagles defensive end Jason Babin.

As he was walking to an elevator, Romo told ESPN Dallas that he’ll play in New York for the NFC East title, and he said that if the Giants had lost to the Jets, thereby making the Cowboys game meaningful, he would have tried his best to return Saturday.

"I would've tried very hard," Romo said. "No question. I did a little bit but the coaching staff decided against that."

Come on Hitch seriously?  Dallas knew the Giants had won the game and it wasn't a division-clinching game.  If you read the postgame comments, Romo said if the Jets would have won, he would have done everything possible to get back out there.  There was no reason for him to return after they knew the Giants won (they knew this in the first quarter).  Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I remember Cowboy fans ripping Vick for not palying with bad ribs, saying Romo would. Then Romo gets knocked out in the first series of a potential division-clinching game against the Eagles. I'm not saying it's karma but...

Tony has improved his game, but overall team is lacking in talent to win in playoffs...they will be better off losing and trying to get players for next year...Merry Christmas...sorry no bad INTENT...

I agree. 20 years ago professional journalism would never have let a misspelling go published. What did they learn in elementary school??

Romo has been absolutely playing like a top 5 QB this year.  This is probably his best overall performance of his career, even though he's had better years statistically in the past.  Time and time again he's led this team to 4th quarter comebacks or at least put the team in position to win, where either the kicking game or defense continued to blow it.  Tony Romo is not the problem.  Basically ever since the Detroit game he's taken his game to another level.

Both Atlanta and Detroit had better records than Dallas going into week 16, even if Dallas had won against the Eagles their only chance of making the playoffs would have been by winning the NFC East and that would require them beating the Giants, that was a predicament they put themselves into by losing the first game to the Giants. If the Giants and Cowboys had both lost Saturday, and the Eagles and Giants were to win in their final games both Dallas and the NYG's would be out of the playoffs and the Eagles would have won the East but because the Giants won they acted as the spoiler for both the Jets and the Eagles, although the Jets still have an outside shot at making the playoffs, They need to beat Miami while Cincinnati, Oakland, Tennessee all lose.
