IRVING, Texas – Losing two of the last three games is bad enough for the Dallas Cowboys.
Now things just got worse.
The beating quarterback Tony Romo took in Sunday’s 30-24 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals will cost the Cowboys his services for likely a month, the sprained right fifth metacarpal he suffered on the first play of overtime turning out to be a broken finger.
For now, the Cowboys will go as is at the quarterback position, turning the 4-2 Cowboys over to veteran backup Brad Johnson, with third quarterback Brooks Bollinger serving as the No. 2 guy in Romo’s absence. Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips will update the situation at his 1:00 (CDT) Monday press conference carried live on DallasCowboys.com.
The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, and certainly the Cowboys will canvass the league for any available candidates, but sensed desperation certainly would drive up the price if the Cowboys are even thinking about bringing in another quarterback for the time being.
