Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo believes his broken rib is completely healed and he may be ready to shed the protective vest he has been wearing for nearly two months.
Romo got hurt Sept. 18 at San Francisco. He has already played without needing a painkilling injection and said Thursday that he's considering not wearing the vest, or at least getting a smaller one. He says he wore the vest last week as a precaution.
The Cowboys (4-4) play Buffalo at home Sunday.
Romo, who hasn't missed a game, says it was nice playing healthy last week against Seattle. He threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and wasn't sacked for the first time this season.
The quarterback was dealing with a cold Thursday, but says he's fine.
