Cowboys’ Tony Romo is ‘fighting through’ pain


The Dallas Cowboys are still trying to sort out their quarterback situation ahead of Sunday’s big game against Philadelphia Eagles. The winner gets the NFC East crown and a trip to the playoffs.

The Cowboys are trying to Tony Romo ready to  play, but for now it looks like they’ll have Kyle Orton under center. Romo had an epidural injection ob Monday to alleviate the pain.

“I saw him briefly today, and he’s fighting through it,” Garrett said, via Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “He’s certainly in a situation where he’s trying to do everything he can to get himself back with the rehab process and treatment process, like any injured player would. He’s a tough guy, as we saw the other day. We’ll just see how he does.”

The Cowboys haven’t ruled Romo out officially yet. While there certainly is a drive to win the division and make the playoffs, is it worth risking Romo’s long-term health and the clubs chances in the future? The Cowboys are riddled with injuries and would likely be dismissed from the playoffs in the first round if they were to make it.
