Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo Is Out For The Season, ESPN Reports

Tony Romo suffered a back injury. He's out for the rest of the season.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been sidelined for the rest of the season due to a back injury, ESPN is reporting.

The Cowboys, with a 8-7 record, defeated Washington 24-23 Sunday. The Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night.

ESPN reports:

Romo said Sunday he would undergo an MRI on his back Monday but didn't believe the injury would jeopardize his availability for the Philadelphia game. Romo said his back, which was sore going into Sunday's comeback victory over the Washington Redskins, began to bother him after a hit in the first half. "That triggered it a little bit," Romo said Sunday. "Whatever the kid did on that one play, it really sent something that didn't feel comfortable. But it's in a completely different spot than the back stuff I had last year, so that's a good sign."
