Tony Romo Injury Update: QB Still Limited In Practice, Expected To Play

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo practiced with a bruised right hand for the second straight day on Thursday, wearing a wrap around his hand that he did not wear during the prior practice.

Romo is still expected to play Sunday when the Cowboys meet the New York Giants for the NFC East championship and a berth in the NFL playoffs.

After Wednesday's practice, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Romo looked "fairly functional" at practice, but admitted there was still an amount of swelling in the hand. Tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Laurent Robinson noted that Romo's throwing motion and accuracy appeared unhindered by the injury. Romo was limited on Thursday, as he was on Wednesday.

Linebacker Sean Lee missed his second straight practice due to illness, but linebacker DeMarcus Ware (neck) and tackle Jay Ratliff (ribs) returned to the field and practiced on a limited basis.
