Tony Romo gets a kiss from Jerry Jones

September, 18, 2011
SAN FRANCISCO -- At the end of a long afternoon at Candlestick Park, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo could barely move. Romo suffered a fractured rib in the Cowboys' dramatic 27-24 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Romo is scheduled to undergo a CT scan on Monday.

Romo moved around the locker room slowly and had trouble putting on a dress shirt and pants.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones felt moved by his quarterback, who didn't start the second half due to the injury only to come back into the game and lead the Cowboys to a game-winning Rally.

Jones and Romo shared an embrace and then Jones kissed Romo on the temple.

It was an emotional moment for Jones, who watched his team rally from a 14-point deficit.

"Extremely," Jones said on the emotions. "Good. It was good. I was so proud for him and proud for us. It was something out of a movie really because he really is hurt."
