INJURY UPDATE: Tony Romo better, but expects to wear vest

IRVING, Texas — Besides moving and throwing better with his fractured rib, quarterback Tony Romo has graduated from sleeping in a recliner back to his bed again.

That’s good news, but he also knows the Detroit Lions will also try to put him flat on his back this Sunday. The rib is slowly making life and football easier, but Romo still expects to wear a protective Kevlar vest and very possibly take another pain-killing injection before the game.

“I think we’ll probably still continue down that path for a little while,” said Romo, who was limited in practice Thursday.

“. . . It’s going to take time. It’s not a one-week thing that just goes away but every week that goes by (or) every five days, it just gets a little better and you feel a little more comfortable doing the little things. It’s improving.”

Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said Romo isn’t back to 100 percent, but he sees a noticeable improvement in practice.

“He’s still having a little bit of pain on some throws, some movement throws, but I think by Sunday he’ll be pretty close to normal,” Wilson said.
