Jerry Jones said Romo's status for Monday is dependent on how much pain he can handle


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."

Jerry always knows whats going on and how anything effects everything. The in's and out's, up's and down's of every situation that concerns the cowboys. You ever heard of deniable plausibility? That's what jerry has. An alibi, so if Tony plays and re-aggravates his already injured ribs and lung to where he's out for the rest if the season. He can say he didn't know the seriousness on the injury.

Jerry Jones SHUT UP

Jerry Jones SHUT UP!
