Tony Romo reportedly had epidural, waiting to see if it helps
The Dallas Cowboys have insisted that Tony Romo is day-to-day despite reports saying he is out for the season. That is likely because they are waiting to see whether an epidural helped his herniated disk that will likely require surgery.
ESPN reported that Romo had an epidural on Sunday after the Cowboys returned home from their road win over the Washington Redskins. Epidurals are injections in the back used to promote healing and alleviate pain. There are generally a series of epidural injections over a course of time, so it remains to be seen whether the injection will have helped.
Despite Romo having the injection, backup quarterback Kyle Orton is expected to start for the Cowboys. The winner of their game with the Philadelphia Eagles takes the NFC East and clinches a playoff berth.
