COVID-19 Protocols Forcing Tony Romo to Miss Sunday's Cardinals-Rams Broadcast for CBS

It was unclear whether Romo’s removal was because he tested positive for coronavirus or due to contact tracing

CBS announced Saturday that because of COVID-19 protocols, NFL analyst and former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not be on the call for Sunday’s Week 17 game between the Arizona Cardinals (8-7) and the Los Angeles Rams (9-6).

The network did not, however, say whether Romo’s removal is because he tested positive for coronavirus or due to contact tracing.

In a similar situation, NBC recently removed Al Michaels from Sunday Night Football back in Week 15.
