Tony Romo Will Miss 4 Weeks With Broken Pinkie

Panic has hit the streets of Dallas as the city tries to come to grips with the Cowboys’ latest loss.  No, I’m not talking about their 30-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in overtime yesterday, though losing two of their last three probably doesn’t sit well with Cowboys fans, I’m talking about their quarterback.

Tony Romo was diagnosed with a sprained pinkie finger after yesterday’s loss, but apparently the doctor who diagnosed it was Jessica Simpson because they had no idea what they were talking about. According to ESPN’s Michael Smith, Romo has a broken pinkie, and is going to miss some time.

From ESPN:

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has a broken pinkie on his throwing hand and will be out four weeks, a team source told ESPN’s Michael Smith.

Romo initially was diagnosed with a pinkie sprain in Sunday’s 30-24 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Veteran quarterback Brad Johnson, the Cowboys’ holder on kicks, is Romo’s backup.

I love how ESPN feels the need to point out that Johnson is the holder on field goal attempts, because somehow his ability to hold kicks speaks to his prowess as a quarterback. Not the fact he’s won a Super Bowl (which Romo hasn’t).

Anyway, back to what’s important here. How is Jessica Simpson going to cope with this devastating injury? How will Tony clap and pretend to enjoy her new album when she forces him to listen to it over and over again? This broken pinkie could bring their relationship toppling down.

As for how this will affect the Cowboys, well, it’s probably not going to help.
