Tony Romo’s Hand Injury Looks Really Bad … but He Says He’ll Be Good for Week 17
Tony Romo lasted just four plays against the Eagles Saturday before exiting the game with a hand injury. Romo’s hand hit Jason Babin’s helmet and ended up swollen like a bop it toy. The X-rays were negative, and Romo apparently was trying to talk his way back into the game, but the team held him out since the game was meaningless. They’re traveling to face the Giants Week 17 for the division Sunday.
“I’ll be fine,” said Romo. “I think I just took a hit to the helmet. We’re going to be all right, though. I think it’s just going to be a few days, do all the stuff [in rehab], but I’ll be good to go next week.”
Romo may be saying he’s fine, but his hand looks like Ishmael’s after getting into a fight with Big Ern. And we all know that hand injury kept Ish out of competition. I’m just saying, with his hand as bad as it looks, I can’t imagine him being able to throw like normal next week.
