Romo Likely Out with Herniated Disk

For the third year in a row, the Dallas Cowboys playoff hopes come down to the final game of the season.  And unfortunately their quarterback will not be there to help out.

It was announced Monday that quarterback Tony Romo is likely out for the rest of the season with a herniated disk.  The back injury will require surgery which has an estimated recovery time of 3-4 months.  Though coach Jason Garrett won’t rule Romo out for Sunday’s game, few expect him to truly be able to play at a level necessary to push the Cowboys past the Philadelphia Eagles.

Say what you will about Romo but I have never questioned his toughness.  And if he thinks he can play through it Sunday, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him out there.
