Romo Back To Practice After Playing With Rib

IRVING, Texas --Thirty-six hours after managing his fractured rib with two pain-killing injections and a protective vest in the win over Washington, quarterback Tony Romo participated in a limited portion of Wednesday's light practice.

"The communication I've had with Tony and also with our doctors and training staff would suggest that he came out of the game fairly well," head coach Jason Garrett said. "The Kevlar vest certainly helped. I don't think there's any reason for him to take that thing off, at least for a little bit."

Said Romo via conference call with the Detroit media: "It's coming along. As long as you win games, it feels good."

Wide receiver Dez Bryant (thigh) was also limited in practice. Fellow starting receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) missed practice and will likely be held out through the team's Week 5 bye, team owner/GM Jerry Jones said on KRLD-FM.
