Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo practiced Thursday with a wrap on his bruised right hand. Romo disliked wearing a glove during Wednesday’s practice, so his throwing hand was wrapped to try and protect it. This is a much better option for Romo heading into the Cowboys’ NFC East title game against the New York Giants on Sunday night.
In 2008, Romo broke the pinky finger on his throwing hand, but played with it wrapped. In fact, Romo threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns in a win over the San Francisco 49ers with a wrap on his hand then.
The wrap won’t be perfect, but it will feel way more natural than wearing a glove. Dallas needs to put Romo in the best possible position to succeed in this do-or-die game and this wrap is the way to go.
