Based on reports, medical history, outlook positive for 2014 return
After Sunday’s stunning comeback over the rival Washington Redskins, neither Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo nor head coach Jason Garrett seemed at all concerned about the signal caller’s availability for the “win-and-you’re-in” season-ending game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That all changed Monday. And his absence will extend beyond Week 17.
After an MRI, Romo is reportedly done for the season. Moreover, he will need to have surgery, a source told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.
So what does this mean for Romo moving forward? And what is his timeline for a return to the field?
To see Tony Romo’s prognosis based on early reports, you must be an ESPN Insider.
