Cowboys QB Tony Romo was back to work Thursday throwing with a protective wrap on his bruised hand in preparation for Sunday’s pivotal regular-season finale against the Giants. Romo expects to play, and at this point there’s little reason to doubt his ability to play injured. Romo helped lead the Cowboys to a comeback victory against the 49ers in Week 2 while playing with fractured ribs.
It would take a lot to keep Romo out of a game with so much meaning, especially against the NFC East rival Giants, who he torched for 321 yards and four TDs in Week 14. The forecast for New York this weekend looks to be cold and rainy, so it would be a lot for Romo to match those numbers. But against a secondary that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per week to opposing QBs, Romo’s a high-quality start.
