The Cowboys knew Romo had a bad back when they gave him that contract
Irving — Either ESPN reporter Adam Schefter is right, and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is out for the season, or there is a chance he can play according to head coach Jason Garrett.
According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Romo has a herniated disc. If Romo plays on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East title, it likely means he will take the needle and hope for the best.
The realistic best case for the Cowboys, even with a healthy Romo, was to defeat the Eagles and maybe pull off a first round upset in the NFC Wildcard round at home. The Cowboys were not going to win a divisional game on the road, even with Romo playing.
