Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo got walloped by the New York Giants defense during the team’s season-opener, which resulted in some bruised ribs. Before the team’s Week 2 match up against the Kansas City Chiefs, Romo received a pain injection for his ribs to get him out on the field. As it turns out, that is going to happen again.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Romo is set to receive another pain injection prior to the team’s Week 3 match up against the St. Louis Rams.

“I think tentatively we are planning on it just because of the nature of it and what we thought,” Romo said. “But we’ll see as we get there.

“It does feel better now than it did last week. It’ll just keep getting better and better this week.”

Romo should be a lot closer to 100 percent for the upcoming game than he was last week, so we shouldn’t expect to see his inconsistent accuracy like the fourth quarter against the Chiefs — as the Dallas Morning News points out.
