Garrett: Romo’s ribs are not an issue

Tony Romo’s passing accuracy was curiously off during the latter stages of Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs.

Romo sustained a rib injury the previous week against the Giants and took a painkilling injection before the game in Kansas City.

In his postgame interview, Romo said the effects of the shot did not wear off during the game.

However, he appeared to alter his follow-through on passes in the fourth quarter, leading to some wayward throws. One of the passes was picked off, but the interception was overturned by a penalty.

“I think you’d have to actually ask him about how he was feeling at different times of the ballgame,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said during his Monday news conference. “I thought he competed well throughout the game.”

Romo was unavailable for comment Monday, but Garrett said his quarterback has not told him that his sore ribs are affecting his play.

“He gives no indication that they are,” Garrett said.
