On Monday, it was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was out for the remainder of the season. However, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett immediately denied those reports and said that Romo has not been ruled out.
Schefter stands by his report, but now another member of the Cowboys front office is saying not to count Romo out.
Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones is saying that Romo could be cleared to play for the team’s season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles in a game that will determine the NFC East winner.
“All I’m saying is he has back spasms, symptoms that we’re treating as we go along in the week to see if he will play,’’ Jones said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “There is nothing structurally that will rule him out if he feels good and is cleared to play. Nothing.’’
It wouldn’t be the Dallas Cowboys without all of the attention and drama leading up to a big game, so we shouldn’t be surprised with the developments.
What will be interesting to see is how Romo recovers during the week and whether or not he suits up to help the Cowboys earn a playoff berth.
