Tono Romo is out for the season following an impressive comeback win against the Redskins. In a game which had been looking like a trademark Cowboy’s loss in the making, Romo and the boys made an impressive push to win the game, scoring on an amazing Romo effort to fend of injury and keep a scoring drive alive.
Unfortunately, what appeared to be an ankle or leg injury which hampered Romo late in the 4th quarter, ended up being a back injury which is not confirmed to be season ending for the Cowboy’s QB.
Rumors of a season-ending injury have been confirmed Monday, and the news is that Romo suffered a herniated disk. The injury means that Kyle Orton will be under center for the team’s most important game of the season, a final game against the Eagles Sunday will decide the playoff hopes for the 8-6 Cowboys. The injury which has ended Romo’s season didn’t stop the Dallas QB from staying on the field and leading his team to a dramatic win as the final quarter wound down.
The Cowboy’s playoff hopes now rest in the hands of Kyle Orton, as the disappointing news of Romo’s injury provides the back-up QB an opportunity to step in and fill a big void.
