Another week, another pain-killing injection for Tony Romo.
Romo had anticipated being done with the game-day injections after last Sunday's game against the Rams. But he will require a shot in his fractured rib one more week, and he again will wear the Kevlar protective vest in Sunday's game.
"It looks like this week we might do all the same stuff as last week," Romo said Thursday. "It looks that way. We'll see after this week."
Romo fractured a rib and punctured a lung in the Week 2 victory over the 49ers. He missed less than a quarter and has not missed a start since. He threw his fewest passes of the season Sunday against the Rams, with 24 attempts, as DeMarco Murray rushed for a team-record 253 yards.
Romo said the rib is nearly healed.
"It feels better in the day-to-day stuff," Romo said. "I just think now it's just a matter of the shot on game day and the things like that are what we really talk about. Everything else, day to day, feels normal."
