Romo injures back; may be out for season finale

The Oskaloosa Herald

---- — IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas coach Jason Garrett said on Monday that Tony Romo hasn’t been ruled out for a winner-take-all finale against Philadelphia after injuring his back against Washington.

Garrett said Romo will get treatment and be evaluated daily, and that the Cowboys were looking to add a third quarterback behind backup Kyle Orton.

Romo injured his back in Sunday’s 24-23 win over Washington, which set up the Cowboys’ third straight regular-season finale with the NFC East title on the line.

The 33-year-old Romo lost the previous two against the New York Giants and Redskins, and another one in 2008 against the Eagles.
