If Dez Bryant plays, Tony Romo won't hold back

12/13/2012

IRVING, Texas – Tony Romo did not throw any passes to Dez Bryant on Thursday, but if the wide receiver plays Sunday against Pittsburgh despite a fractured left index finger, the Cowboys quarterback will not hold back.

Well, not on Sunday, I don’t think so,” Romo said. “Right now, yeah. We’re going to wait to test out that stuff. There is no reason to do it today, three days (before the game) or two days.”

Bryant’s 27-yard touchdown catch Sunday at Cincinnati came after he hurt his finger on a hard throw from Romo. He caught another pass on the game-winning drive.

“Well, he’s got phenomenal hands,” Romo said. “There are different ways to catch a ball and he can probably tell you better than anybody how to catch footballs. So, I trust him. He’s going to put him in that position and I know he’s going to find a way to play at a certain level that it allows him. If he can’t, then it’s not in anyone’s (best interest) … But he’s smart. He’s a good player, and he’s a great player that helps us. If can be out there, it’s going to be a big deal.”
