Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo is listed as day-to-day with his herniated disk injury, but reports out of Dallas don’t seem to be all that encouraging.
According to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, Romo wasn’t at Cowboys’ practice or meetings today because he wasn’t feeling comfortable:
Tony Romo (herniated disk) was not at practice or team meetings because he’s still getting treatment and “doesn’t seem overly comfortable.” CoachJason Garrett reiterated that Romo’s status is “day to day” leading up to Sunday night’s season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.
With just days before their all-important clash with the Philadelphia Eagles, this isn’t the best news for the Cowboys. Though Romo is known for his inconsistent play and inability to come through in the “clutch”, there’s little doubting the fact that he’s a better option for Dallas at quarterback than Kyle Orton.
No disrespect to Orton, who has done some great things in the NFL, but there is a talent discrepancy.
Philly heads to Dallas with a 9-6 record while the Cowboys come into this matchup at 8-7. Dallas won the first matchup 17-3 in Week 7, so if the Cowboys can win this game; they’ll finish with the same record as the Eagles and will have the tie-breaker.
That means if the Cowboys can beat the Eagles on Sunday Night Football; they’ll win the NFC East and will make the playoffs.
