Irving — Tony Romo led the Dallas Cowboys to a comeback victory Sunday that kept their playoff hopes alive. The Cowboys need an even bigger comeback from Romo this week.
An MRI on Romo’s back did not offer good news Monday: He has a herniated disk that could require surgery, according to a source.
The Cowboys, even while refusing to rule out Romo for Sunday’s win-or-go-home game against the Philadelphia Eagles, are making backup plans.
Kyle Orton, whose last start was Jan. 1, 2012, for the Kansas City Chiefs, is the Cowboys’ likely starter Sunday.
