Romo still not practicing, still hopes to play
Center Phil Costa was hurt in the fourth quarter against the 49ers and didn’t practice Thursday. Left guard Derrick Dockery is out with multiple injuries, putting rookie Bill Nagy back in the lineup. Nagy started the opener, then gave way to the veteran because of a knee injury.
Both starting receivers and the starting running back are hurting, too.
Receiver Miles Austin aggravated a hamstring injury late on Sunday and hasn’t practiced. He’s not likely to play.
Receiver Dez Bryant was back on the practice field Friday, but was listed as not working out. He’s been out since hurting his left thigh in the opener.
Running back Felix Jones, who dislocated a shoulder early against the 49ers, was listed as having limited participation Friday.
A new injury cropped up, too _ kickoff specialist David Buehler was out with a groin problem.
“In some ways we’re lucky because I don’t know that we have a lot of long-term injuries happening right now,” Romo said. “However, we’re banged up at the moment. … A lot of guys have stepped up with some injuries that they’ve gutted out more than I have.”
Romo said he’s not concerned that the injuries to his blockers and his skill-position specialists making him more of a target. Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall already has said that he and his teammates see a bull’s-eye on Romo’s ribs.
“That’s part of playing football,” he said. “If they’re able to get a clean shot on my ribs consistently throughout the game, then we’re probably not doing that well anyway.”
