Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declined to predict quarterback Tony Romo's presence in Monday's showdown against the Redskins.
One day after coach Jason Garrett said he didn't see any reason why Romo wouldn't play against the Redskins, Jones took a more cautious approach on his local radio show on 105.3 The Fan.
Romo remains in pain after suffering a fractured rib and a punctured lung in Sunday's overtime victory against the 49ers. The Cowboys expect the puncture to heal sufficiently enough for him to play but they will continue to evaluate him throughout the week.
"I don't know," Jones said. "I really don't. I understand the nature of the injury as much as you can without being in medicine. We'll just have to see how it goes. It has everything to do with just his ability to handle the pain, and we know he has a bunch of it."
