Romo’s fickle finger of fate

Even with his fractured pinkie, there is no doubt Dallas quarterback Tony Romo wants to play. But being able to play as well as being cleared medically are a different issue.

Romo has been told that if he plays, and if he aggravates his pinkie injury, it could become a displaced fracture. And if his pinkie becomes a displaced fracture, then the 4- to 5-week time frame which Romo is expected to miss would become more prolonged.

With a displaced fracture, Romo would face season-ending surgery.

Now, even with Romo telling the Cowboys coaches he wants to play, Dallas’ coaches must make one of the most significant decisions of this season. Their choice.

There’s a big upside and an even larger downside.
