Garrett Still Not Ready to Rule Romo Out

Quarterback Tony Romo (back) missed practice again on Thursday

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett isn’t about to declare starting quarterback Tony Romo out for Sunday’s matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Romo missed practice on Thursday, and Garrett told reporters this week that even if Romo misses the team’s workout again on Friday, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be held out against the Eagles. As they have since it was reported that the Dallas signal caller would be done for the year with a herniated disc, Garrett and the Cowboys continue to maintain that Romo is day-to-day.

"Really, the same answer as yesterday, just continuing to go through the process with Tony and see how he feels every day waking up," Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. "Evaluate him, treat him and just see how he responds to it as much as anything else. And continue to evaluate him a lot of different ways. More than anything else, just treat him and see how he feels."

Obviously, from the outside looking in, Romo’s chances don’t look great. But Garrett believes that if anyone can return from such an injury quicker than expected, it’s the veteran quarterback.

"Certainly, I think Tony demonstrated his toughness as a football player and as a person the other day in the ball game," Garrett said. "I think he's demonstrated that before. If anybody has a chance to come back from an injury quickly, it's Tony Romo."
