Cowboys' Romo Undergoes Back Surgery, Will Miss Remainder of Season

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett announced Friday that quarterback Tony Romo 
underwent  back surgery  and will be placed on injured reserve. The news means 
that  backup  Kyle Orton will  start Sunday's contest against the Philadelphia 
Eagles  which will decide the NFC East champion. Earlier in the week, ESPN.com 
reported  that Romo needed surgery for a herniated disk. The Cowboys, however, 
didn't go into any details about the injury and publicly remained hopeful that 
Romo  could play  Sunday. Romo, who suffered  the injury in a Week 16 win over 
the  Washington  Redskins, received an  epidural injection on Monday. However, 
his  chances  of playing Sunday were  slim after missing practice on Wednesday 
and Thursday. Reality set in Friday morning, when Romo had surgery.
