Cowboys' Romo Says He'll Play, Team Lists him Questionable for Sunday
Sunday at 11:00am MT, the Dallas Cowboys will host their second consecutive game, this time against the 3-0 Detroit Lions. It's Detroit's best start in 55 years.
The Cowboys are 2-1, after a tough Monday Night Football victory over Washington. Dallas is seeking its third straight win over Detroit and sixth in seven matchups. The Cowboys, though, will be without Miles Austin (hamstring) for a second straight game, and fellow starting wideout Dez Bryant (thigh) is questionable after missing a second consecutive practice Friday. Romo is also listed as questionable, though he told the media he plans to play tomorrow.
"I mean obviously you would like everybody to be 100%, and we have some good players banged up right now, that's part of playing in the NFL, the next guy has got to step up and play good ball. We have some young guys who are doing a good job", said Romo. Lions Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh spoke of Romo. "Obviously he's dealing with pain when he's getting hit, repeatedly, so I just want to have him uncomfortable and attack him anyway we can, to affect his game, and not allow him to be 100%."
"When the whole season ends up getting written and the book's done on the year, they don't ask you what happened in week two or three or four or six, why you lost or won. It's a 'W' or an 'L,'" quarterback Tony Romo said. "Some are ugly. Some you win going away. But at the end of the year, you need the wins. Tonight was a great example of us keep grinding, keep going forward."
