In a big Tony Romo injury update, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback underwent X-rays on his ribs on Monday. According to CBS Dallas on Sept. 9, the X-rays came back negative and he should be good to go in week two against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Romo was hurt pretty bad on a big hit right before halftime, falling to the ground after two Giants defenders sandwiched the quarterback. Romo came back and finished the game, completing 36 of 49 passes for 263 yards. He also threw two touchdowns and one interception in the game.
Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said the team is confident that Tony Romo will be good to play in week two.
With that good news, the next item to look at is a Dez Bryant injury from late in the big win over the New York Giants. Bryant was double covered for most of the game, which opened up the passing game for Miles Austin, Jason Witten and DeMarco Murray.
Bryant suffered a sprained left foot late in the game, and it was obvious as he limped around and tried to shake off the injury.
Bryant also underwent X-rays on his ankle, which also came back negative. However, a sprained ankle can linger some, and there is a good chance it will cause a lot of discomfort for the star receiver, although Bryant said he will play in week two.
There is also concern for the Bryant injury, as an MRI has been scheduled to make sure there is no Lisfranc issue in his foot.
The Dallas Cowboys next play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
