Tony Romo's back not improving much

Though the Cowboys want to leave the option of Tony Romo playing open against the Eagles, all signs indicate that he won't be able to play.

According to a report from ESPN, Romo's back has barely improved since injuring it during Dallas' win over Washington this past Sunday.

It was previously reported by several outlets that Romo would miss the remainder of the season, which includes any postseason trip. If the Cowboys defeat the Eagles on Sunday, they'll advance to the playoffs as the NFC East champs.

The Cowboys won't confirm that Romo is out for any potential postseason games.

However, it definitely looks like the Cowboys will have to try and win the division with Kyle Orton at the helm. Orton has only attempted five passes this season.
