Tony Romo passed on speaking to the local members of the evil media today, but he did field questions on a conference call with the Seattle media.
Of all the things he didn't say, which was a lot, he did admit the broken right pinkie is better and that he's just about ready for the splint to come off.
"It's getting a lot better," he said. "Each day, each week, the passes ... I feel like I could probably get to a point (where I could be) playing without the splint this week. I don't know if the trainers and doctors are going to let me, but I'm getting pretty close. I'd like to think it'll be almost all the way healed this weekend, if not by Thursday."
Still bet on the splint being around the pinkie until the Cowboys play the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Dec. 7.
Unlike the first game back for Romo after the pinkie was broken when some of his passes were all over the field, by now he's used to throwing with it and he can put the ball where he wants.
"It's just a matter of, with the splint on, every once in a blue moon, it'll pop up and affect the throw a little. But other than that, it's been good."
