ARLINGTON, Texas – As expected, quarterback Tony Romo will play tonight against the Redskins with the fractured rib that limited him in the Cowboys' previous game and in practice during the week.
Romo is wearing a protective vest and could take pain medication as well. He said the pneumothorax in his lung resolved itself during the week, so he'd be ready if managing the rib pain was his only issue. The Cowboys will keep third QB Stephen McGee active on the 46-man game-day roster.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant (thigh contusion) and running back Felix Jones (dislocated shoulder) are active. Bryant missed last week's game against San Francisco and Jones was limited in that game.
Dan Bailey will handle kickoffs because David Buehler (strained groin) was deactivated after testing his leg in warm-ups. Other inactives include WR Miles Austin, CB Orlando Scandrick, G Derrick Dockery, DE Clifton Geathers, RB Phillip Tanner and G David Arkin.
