Friday, October 17, 2008. (AP) -- Dallas is listing Tony Romo as questionable for Sunday after he didn't participate in the final practice before the Cowboys trip to St. Louis.

Romo broke the pinkie finger on his throwing hand late in last week's overtime loss to Arizona and originally was ruled out for up to a month. He told coaches earlier this week that despite the injury he wanted to play against the Rams.

Romo hasn't commented all week. And neither has Brad Johnson, the 40-year-old backup who will get his first NFL start since 2006 with Minnesota if Romo can't go.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a radio interview earlier today that there was no chance Romo could reinjure the pinkie because of the cast-like protection on his hand.

Jones also said the decision if Romo will play will depend on how the quarterback feels Sunday. Coach Wade Phillips says it's possible Romo could be active for the game without starting.
