The 9-4 Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been playing with a broken rib for two month and Romo said it himself after the win Thursday against the Chicago Bears. Coincidentally Brandon Marshall was hospitalized after being injured during the game with a rib injury and collapsed lung.
The NFL is investigating on why Romo was not on the injury report. ESPN reported, “NFL’s injury report policy, “All players with significant or noteworthy injuries must be listed on the report, even if the player takes all the reps in practice, and even if the team is certain that he will play in the upcoming game.””.
Romo has been on the injury report but for his back.
New York Jets were fined in 2009 when they didn’t report Bret Farve’s injury in the final month of 2008 season. He had a torn bicept tendon according to ESPN reports. Jets were fine over $100,000.
