The Dallas Cowboys are taking on the Philadelphia Eagles tonight for the NFC East title. They’ll do so without starting quarterback Tony Romo who underwent back surgery on Friday morning and is still recovering.

Romo isn’t the only Cowboy dealing with back issues. Wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was voted into the Pro Bowl, will also go visit a back specialist in the offseason according to Cowboys insider Bryan Broaddus.

As far as this week is concerned, Bryan will play despite the fact that he did not practice Thursday and he was limited Wednesday and Friday with a sore back. When asked by a reporter if he was going to play it led to an interesting exchange.

From the Dallas Morning News:

“Look how I’m standing,” Bryant said. “That should tell you enough.”

When a reporter responded that Bryant was standing straight, the 25-year-old receiver said: “Yeah. I’m ready to go. I’m good. I’m ready.”

Aside from Bryant, the Cowboys also sent left tackle Tyron Smith to the Pro Bowl.
