(Newser) – Cowboys quarterback and Jessica Simpson boytoy Tony Romo will miss 4 weeks after breaking his right pinkie in yesterday's 30-24 loss to the Cardinals, the Dallas Morning News reports. Chike Okeafor sacked Romo on the first play of overtime for a 7-yard—and three-game—loss. Forty-year-old Brad Johnson, who last started in 2006, inherits the Dallas (4-2) starting job.
