IRVING, Texas (AP) If it's a question of tolerating pain, Tony Romo says he will play Sunday against Arizona - and history supports him on that point.
The issue in the 34-year-old Dallas quarterback's mind is whether he can run the offense while dealing with his third back injury in 18 months. He said Wednesday he doesn't know, which goes to owner Jerry Jones' point that it could be a game-time decision against the Cardinals.
Romo said the injury that sidelined him for about a quarter before he returned late in regulation of Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to Washington was "more than a contusion," referring to coach Jason Garrett's description. He wouldn't be more specific about the damage from a direct hit to his surgically repaired back on a third-quarter sack by linebacker Keenan Robinson.
