Damn, bad news for Cowboys fans. Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to his back injury.  Hit the jump for details…





Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss the rest of the season due to a back injury, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Cowboys (8-7) host the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) on Sunday with the winner capturing the NFC East title. Kyle Orton likely will now get the start against the Eagles.

Romo said Sunday he would undergo an MRI on his back Monday, but he didn’t believe it would jeopardize his availability for the game against Philadelphia.

Romo said his back, which was sore coming into Sunday’s victory over the Washington Redskins, troubled him after a hit in the first half.

“That triggered it a little bit,” Romo said Sunday. “Whatever the kid did on that one play, it really sent something that didn’t feel comfortable.
