The week has been besieged by players and coaches who will miss Week 17 of the NFL season due to COVID-19 protocols.

Now, via a CBS Sports announcement, comes news Jim Nantz won’t have Tony Romo by his side as the Arizona Cardinals meet the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium on Sunday.

The culprit? COVID-19 protocols, of course.

CBS did not say whether Romo tested positive or was exposed to someone who did.

He will be replaced by Boomer Esiason, who usually is on the NFL Today panel.
