Cards coach Bruce Arians thinks everything coming out of Dallas about Romo is just a smoke screen and they are getting ready to face Romo. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett had said Romo wasn’t ruled out but that he didn’t know his status for Sunday’s game.
If you are the Cardinals you really can’t do anything else but prepare for him. If Romo can’t go then it would be Brandon Weeden. Weeden was able to help drive the Cowboys to 10 points on Monday night.
On Wednesday the Cowboys said Romo’s chances to play on Sunday would have to do with his pain tolerance. To me it sounds like medically they would let him play but if he is in too much pain, then we may not see him on the field. My money is on Romo playing unless more bad news about his back comes out. Where the Cowboys say he stands now, I say he plays. The Cards are counting on it too.
