IRVING, Texas (December 26, 2011) -- The swelling is going down on Tony Romo's bruised throwing hand, and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback could be ready to practice Wednesday.

Coach Jason Garrett says it looks as if Romo is getting better and that a number of different tests have confirmed the original diagnosis of nothing being broken in the quarterback's right hand.

Asked Monday if Romo can grip a football, Garrett responded that the quarterback has a relatively firm handshake.

All indications are that Romo isn't in danger of missing Sunday night's game at the New York Giants that will determine who wins the NFC East and goes to the playoffs.

Starting left guard Montrae Holland was put on season-ending injured reserve Monday with a partially torn left biceps.
