Tony Romo Breaks Finger, Out For A Month

Before you go blaming Jessica, take a deep breath Dallas fans. Tony Romo has broken his finger and will be out for up to four weeks. He broke his right pinky finger on the first play of overtime against Arizona, which quickly ended with a Cardinals win of 30-24.

Romo wasn't present in the locker room after last night's game when it was open to reporters. But teammate, linebacker Eddie James said,
"We've got to play relentless football now without our signal caller, our leader, our captain on the offensive side. That's the thing about a season; you never know what can happen. You hope you are playing some real good ball when things go down, so here we are and now we've got to make some adjustments and move on."

Receiver Terrell Owens refused to comment, getting agitated when he saw cameras recording him. "Today is not Wednesday," he said, referring to the day he routinely talks to reporters.

What an a$$. He was probably just mad the attention wasn't on him. The Cowboys, who are now 4-2, will have 40-year-old Brad Johnson in the quarterback position until Romo is back.
