ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that league sources have informed him that Cowboys QB Tony Romo is out for the season following a back injury he suffered during Sunday’s fourth quarter win over Washington.
- Chris Mortensen reports that Romo has been diagnosed with a herniated disc that will require surgery.
Romo somehow managed to finish the game and throw a game-winning touchdown, despite the injury occurring earlier in the game.
This is clearly a major setback for the Cowboys who will go into Week 17 with an opportunity to win the NFC East and clinch a playoff spot.
Kyle Orton is now the starter, so we’ll have to see if he’s capable of working some magic against an Eagles team that is coming off of a very impressive performance against the Bears.
Romo season end with 3,828 yards passing to go along with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
