IRVING -- Tony Romo officially practiced Friday, but how much was being described as "limited" by the Dallas Cowboys. He is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
In the brief portion of practice the media was allowed to watch, Romo did not throw a pass. He is, however, wearing a protective cast on his throwing hand to protect his broken pinkie.
Veteran backup Brad Johnson took all the first-team snaps and remains the starter for Sunday. At least for now.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show on 1310 KTCK Friday morning that the decision to play is Romo's.

"If he is feeling good and the pain is good then it's likely he'll play, and he felt good" Thursday, Jones said.Jones said there is no risk of further injuring the hand because of the cast.
"Tony is really the bonus guy in this situation," Coach Wade Phillips said. "I just want to make that clear that we haven't gone into the game saying, 'Oh boy, if Tony can come in.' We're saying, 'Hey, we can win with Brad. I think that's what we're looking at, and if Tony comes in, then it will be a bonus."
