According to Mike Fisher of CBS 105.3 The Fan in Dallas,  X-rays on Tony Romo’s ribs came back negative, which me he  bruised his ribs.

Tony Romo probably won’t escape discomfort this week. But he’s dodged a serious-injury bullet with the Cowboys saying their quarterback underwent X-rays on Monday morning looking for damage in the area of his ribs and that the results are negative.

The Cowboys were optimistic that Romo was fine.

“We feel optimistic with the tests coming back negative,’’ Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones tells 105.3 The Fan’s Elf and Slater. “He’ll be sore but something he’ll be able to play with, as it looks right now.’’

You have to give Romo credit for being so tough.

“It’s part of football,” Romo said. “You take some hits sometime. You’ve got to play. You just get back out there and play.”
