Adam Schefter/ESPN Reports: Tony Romo Out For Season

Greg Fiume

The Dallas Cowboys will be without their quarterback for the rest of the year according to ESPN.

On ESPN, Adam Schefter just stated that a source told him Tony Romo has a back injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

[UPDATE: Jason Garrett at his presser said Romo is day-to-day and will receive treatment and they will evaluate if he will play this week. Count me among those that didn't believe that line from Garrett for a moment.]

This is obviously a huge surprise as no one saw this coming. If it turns out to be true, Dallas will have to turn to Kyle Orton for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. DeMarco Murray would become even more important in the scheme for Sunday's game. Orton is a competent backup but he hasn't seen much time this year and hasn't started since 2011.

We'll stay on the story as Bryan Broaddus has a little doubt.
