Tony Romo reports denied by Cowboys HC Jason Garrett who says status is still unknown

The biggest and most shocking news of the day was that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had been ruled out for this upcoming Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.  But while the football world is reacting to the news, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is saying we need to pump the brakes on reports that Romo is indeed done for the season.

The word at the moment is that Romo has a herniated disk, something FOX guru Jay Glazer reported Monday afternoon. But Garrett spoke about the reports at a press conference and said that Romo in fact hadn’t been ruled out, something that was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. If Romo is unable to go on Sunday, Kyle Orton would be the quarterback but that might not be something set in stone just yet.


It sounding like surgery for the herniated disk will have to happen eventually but if the Cowboys aren’t ruling Romo out, that means he could still play on Sunday. It’s likely that there is still some in-fighting going between Garrett and Jerry Jones but a decision will be made official well before Sunday’s game. What that decision will be is still up in the air but for now, there’s some hope that Romo will still start.
