Cowboys HC Jason Garrett told reporters on Thursday that QB Tony Romo remains “day-to-day.”
“The same answer on Tony,” said Garrett, per Ian Rapoport. “…We’ll continue to evaluate him and treat him, see how he feels.”
“Pain is the biggest issue, relative to how he can function,” added Garrett. “Backs tend to impact your whole body. Hopefully he’ll respond.”
However, Romo didn’t practice or even attend the Cowboys’ meeting or game-plan session. Dallas has yet to officially rule Romo out for Week 17’s winner-take-all game against the Eagles.
HC Jason Garrett referred to Romo as “day-to-day” on Wednesday, but it seems almost certain that Kyle Orton will get the start.
Orton has already been taking all of the first-team reps this week and the addition of Jon Kitna further indicates that Romo will be held out.
We’ll have more regarding Romo’s Week 17 status as the news is available.
