Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has a broken finger on his throwing hand and could be out for up to four weeks. Romo broke his right pinkie on the first play of overtime in a 30-24 loss at Arizona on Sunday. "We don't know how long he'll be out. It depends on how fast that heals," said coach Wade Phillips, who says there won't be any surgery. The injury leaves the Cowboys (4-2) with Brad Johnson, 40, as the starter Sunday at St. Louis. Johnson, who won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, hasn't started a game since 2006 with the Minnesota Vikings.

Len suffered the injury Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors when his pinky got stuck in an opponent's jersey. This is the second straight year Len has missed time during the summer league because of injury; he sat out last year while recovering from ankle surgeries. Len made only 42 appearances for the Suns as a rookie, averaging 8.6 minutes per game.

In a season full of stellar performances, Smithsburg starting pitcher Josh Miller saved his best for last. The senior tossed a complete game shutout and struck out 10 to lift the Leopards of Washington County to the Class 1A state championship, defeating Sparrows Point 9-0 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Pointers senior ace Josh Icenrode started despite a broken finger that sidelined him for two weeks. The injury appeared to affect his control; after walking only eight batters all season, Icenrode walked 10 against Smithsburg.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Saturday's game produced the first catches in the Maryland career of tight end — and former Terps lacrosse player — Will Yeatman. Yeatman was playing with a slimmed-down cast on his broken finger. Coaches hoped the lighter wrap might make it easier for him to catch. It worked. The Notre Dame transfer made his first reception of the season, for 10 yards, early in the second quarter. He caught a 20-yarder and an 11-yarder on the same drive. The drive ended with Maryland's only points of the game.

The Lakers' Kobe Bryant suffered a broken finger on his shooting hand in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. He wore a splint on his index finger in the second half of the Lakers' 11th straight victory. He hurt himself reaching for a pass late in the first quarter, and he played through it briefly before leaving in the second quarter to get X-rays. It's not his first avulsion fracture, in which a small piece of bone tears away near a ligament or tendon. Bryant started as the Lakers, an NBA-best 18-3 after playing 17 of their first 21 games at home, began a five-game trip Saturday in Utah.

Capitals right wing Mike Knuble has a broken finger and will be sidelined three to four weeks. Knuble was injured on a power play in the first period of Friday's 3-1 victory over the Wild. He crashed into the net when defenseman Marek Zidlicky sent him hurdling over goaltender Josh Harding . The Capitals said Knuble will have surgery. The team did not say which finger was broken. Knuble has five goals and 10 assists for the Capitals this season. He was one of Washington's major offseason acquisitions, signing a two-year deal, $5.6 million deal on the first day of NHL free agency in July.

ST. LOUIS - The chant from the sizable contingent of Dallas Cowboys fans began early in the third quarter. "Romo ... Romo ... Romo ...!" By then, it was far too late. Quarterback Tony Romo, sidelined by a broken right pinkie, or even Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman, couldn't have saved the imploding Cowboys against the resurgent St. Louis Rams yesterday at the Edward Jones Dome. For one day at least, the Rams (2-4) turned back the clock to the high-flying, Greatest Show on Turf days with a 34-14 dismantling of Dallas.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Not many players can match Oakland A's right-hander Esteban Loaiza for dealing with ups and downs the past year or so. He's the guy that the Washington Nationals picked off the scrap heap in 2005, signed to a one-year deal and watched win 12 games for an upstart, first-year franchise. The Nationals wanted him back, and picked up their end of a mutual option. But Loaiza chose free agency and got a three-year $21 million deal (with a $375,000 buyout on a fourth year) from the usual penny-pinching A's. A lot was expected of Loaiza, 34, and he failed miserably in the first half.

Americans are 0-4 against Cubans so far, and none of the U.S. fighters has ever beaten a Cuban.Their futility has even Cuban coach Alcides Sagarra searching for answers.

The Orioles went all of one day without having to put a key player on the disabled list. But that ended yesterday when outfielder Larry Bigbie became the third player in four days to land there because of the strained left hamstring he suffered leaving the batter's box May 12 in Chicago. The injury originally cost Bigbie five games, but he returned and played six of seven games before it got worse during the series against the Seattle Mariners, making him unavailable Friday. With Bigbie on the DL, the Orioles purchased the contract of infielder-outfielder Napoleon Calzado, who was batting .313 with six homers and 27 RBIs in 41 games with Triple-A Ottawa.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles second baseman Jerry Hairston apparently will avoid having surgery on his right ring finger, though he's still expected to begin the season on the disabled list. A visit to a hand specialist yesterday confirmed that the fractured knuckle is healing properly. Hairston's finger will remain in a splint until March 26, when he'll return to Baltimore for another examination. "I passed the first test with flying colors," he said. "Hopefully, the next one will be great."
