Despite the report from ESPN that Tony Romo is done for the season, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is optimistic that he’ll be able to play on Sunday night against the Eagles.
“All I’m saying is he has back spasms, symptoms that we’re treating as we go along in the week to see if he will play,’’ Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “There is nothing structurally that will rule him out if he feels good and is cleared to play. Nothing.’’
Jones is optimistic that Romo will be able to play.
“The facts are there is a lot of we can’t comment on,’’ Jones said. “But the most important thing is if he feels better as the week goes along, there is nothing structurally to prevent him from playing. He might be cleared to play.’’
I wouldn’t be shocked at all if Romo plays.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports also reported that Romo could end up playing if they’re able to manage the pain. He wouldn’t be at risk of injuring his back any further.
