Romo could end up missing time with back injury


Despite a Willis Reed moment (without, you know, the victory) on Monday night against Washington, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo doesn’t have a green light to play on Sunday against the Cardinals.

And Romo may not get one.

One league source with knowledge of the situation currently believes Romo will miss time with the latest back injury. Dubbed a contusion in a spot different from the site of his late 2013 surgery, Romo nevertheless remains in doubt as the team awaits more information from doctors regarding his condition.

As noted by Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, coach Jason Garrett has been all over the place regarding Romo, from saying he anticipates Romo will play to calling that speculation.

The Cowboys will be inclined to keep the Cardinals in the dark for as long as possible regarding whether the 6-1 team will face Romo or Brandon Weeden. Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will address the impact of that uncertainty on his preparations during Wednesday’s PFT Live.
