Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo finished the game after injuring his back on Sunday. It remains unlikely that he’ll finish the season.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Romo’s back has improved “only slightly” since receiving an epidural injection and other treatment.
Per Werder, Romo hasn’t attended practice, a team meeting, or a game-planning session this week. Which suggests that Romo has been spending a lot of time off his feet and in turn away from being actively involved in planning for the franchise’s latest playoff play-in game.
And so the signs continue to point strongly to Romo not playing and Kyle Orton getting the nod. Barring some sort of a miracle.
Which means the Cowboys are likely to lose the Third Annual NFC East Championship game. Barring some sort of a miracle.
