Cowboys Make It Official, Jason Garrett Announces Tony Romo Has Surgery On His Back

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys QB is sidelined for the rest of 2013 season.

The Dallas Cowboys managed to keep up their smokescreen all the way until today's press conference with Jason Garrett. Hoping to gain some competitive advantage by making the Philadelphia Eagles guess about the probability of Tony Romo playing in Sunday's NFC East Championship Game, the Cowboys insisted that Romo's season may not be over. The ruse likely didn't fool anybody and the Cowboys cast it aside today. Jason Garrett announced the inevitable, Romo is done for this season and had back surgery this morning.

"The procedure happened this morning," Garrett said. "We felt the surgery went well. Tony should be able to come home later today and start his rehabilitation.

"He'll start his road to recovery, sooner rather than later. We're completely confident he will rehab and come back at 100 percent."

We can now focus fully on Kyle Orton, the man who will lead the Cowboys on Sunday and help determine their playoff fate for the 2013 season.
