Tony Romo reportedly out for the remainder of season

Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been ruled out the rest of the season due to his back injury, per league source.

An MRI was scheduled for Monday after a back flare-up that looked like a leg injury when Romo limped around the possession before a drive that ended with a fourth-down pass to DeMarco Murray and gave Dallas a 24-23 win over the Redskins.
