The Dallas Cowboys were hoping that an epidural injection would help starting quarterback Tony Romo heal up from his back injury and work his way towards taking the field on Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it looks like the injection did not help as much as the team was hoping.
Dallas will need a win over Philadelphia in the regular season finale in order to win the NFC East and make their way into the postseason, but it looks like Kyle Orton will be the man leading the team.
From Ed Werder of ESPN:
Tony Romo’s back is only slightly improved since epidural injection and treatment. Didn’t practice, attend team meeting or game-plan session

With Romo still struggling to get healthy, no one really believes that he will be able to take the field.
Romo would love to suit up and help the team reach their goal, but the reality is beginning to set in that he won’t be available for the team.
Dallas will likely continue to play coy leading up to their Week 17 match up, so that the Eagles defense will need to continue wondering which quarterback they will be facing.
