Giants expect Cowboys' Romo to play


Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, who injured his right (throwing) hand Sunday against Philadelphia, practiced today on a limited basis.

"He still has swelling in his hand," Garrett said. "He was able to grip the ball and throw it a little bit. He was limited and didn't take all the reps that he would normally take."

Garrett was asked if Romo will play on Sunday.

"I think he is making progress and we will see how he will respond to the work he got today," Garrett said. "We hope that he will get more and more as the week progresses and be ready to play in the game. We will see."

Romo left little doubt he believes he'll take the Cowboys' first snap.

"It continues to improve day-by-day," said Romo, who threw four touchdowns passes on Dec. 11. "Today was good. I was able to do some things with the ball that we weren't sure about so it was a good start to the week. We are going to keep working on it and get all the treatment and stuff. We should be good to go for this weekend."

The Giants fully expect Romo to play.

"I think he's full-go," Coughlin said. "I think anybody that has any chance, a lot of times when you talk about this time of the year when you really talk about playoff games, and that's what these are, the guys find a way to get out of the training room and this will be no different with Romo. He will do everything in his power. We've seen him play through the rib injuries so they'll get better – the swelling and the hand control – and I fully expect that he'll be ready to go."
