DMN Blog: Wade Phillips doesn't think Tony Romo's injury is serious

By Tim MacMahon/Blogger

There was enough concern about Tony Romo's right ankle to schedule more tests for today.

But Wade Phillips didn't get the results of those tests before his afternoon press conference. Phillips said nobody had indicated to him that Romo's injury is serious, but he didn't have many details. Romo did not need crutches.
Romo suffered the injury during the third quarter and didn't miss a play. It sounds unlikely that the ankle will prevent him from playing Sunday night against the Giants.

However, the injury could have a negative effect on Romo's conditioning. He mentioned during minicamp that he wasn't able to maintain his conditioning last season in part because of a broken pinky finger and ankle and back injuries. Romo considers cardio work and squats to be important parts of his in-season conditioning regimen.
