Romo Practices, Could Play with Broken Pinkie

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo wants to play Sunday against St. Louis -- despite a broken pinkie on his throwing hand.

Romo practiced today. He threw lightly to all receivers during the early portion of practice that was open to reporters, though 40-year-old backup Brad Johnson was working with the starters during drills.

Neither quarterback took direct snaps from centers during that time.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Wade Phillips talked to each other while Romo threw on the opposite side of the field.

Jones didn't talk to reporters at practice, but earlier at a news conference was asked if Romo would play. Jones responded, "It looks promising."

Romo was hurt on the first play of overtime in Sunday's 30-24 loss at Arizona.

Romo, after getting a call from New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre, at midweek told coaches he'd like to play.
