The Dallas Cowboys announced Friday morning that Romo underwent back surgery and was place on IR ending his 2013 season.
“Kyle Orton will be our starter in the ballgame [against the Philadelphia Eagles]." Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. "We spent the week exhausting all options in regards to Tony’s situation – treatment, rehab, all the different things, consulted a lot of different people on this. We just felt like as we discussed it, as yesterday wore on, that this was the best decision for him and for our organization moving forward.”
How comforted are Cowboy fans now. The entire season resting on a winner-take-all game Sunday against the Eagles to reach the playoffs and the back up quarterback must go.
Kyle Orton has thrown five passes this year and completed 3 of them.
Look on the bright side Cowboy fans, maybe Orton won't throw a season ending fourth quarter interception against Philly.
