Cowboys | Tony Romo has rib fracture

Cowboys | Tony Romo has rib fractureDallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (rib) has a rib fracture, which he suffered during Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He will not return to the team's Week 2 game, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point. QB Jon Kitna has replaced him in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Definitely not a good start for Romo, who missed a significant amount of time last season due to injury. Kitna would start should Romo continue to miss time, which slightly decreases the fantasy potential of the Dallas offense. If you do not have a capable backup to depend upon, Kitna is worth picking up to cover your bases while Romo's short- and long-term availability is uncertain.
