Romo Diagnosed With Herniated Disk; Status Unclear

It has been yet another roller coaster season for Tony Romo.

A week after an embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo led his offense to a fourth quarter comeback victory against the Washington Redskins. Romo threw a touchdown pass to RB DeMarco Murray in a do-or-die fourth down situation with less than two minutes on the clock.

The Cowboys won 24-23, but Romo has been diagnosed with a herniated disk that will require surgery.

Romo may be able to play through the injury, but in all likelihood, he will be sidelined when the Cowboys square off against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. The winner of the highly anticipated match-up will win the NFC East, while the losing team’s season will be ended.

The Cowboys’ backup, QB Kyle Orton, has started for the Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, and Kansas City Chiefs. He has appeared in three regular season games since joining Dallas in 2012.
