Report: Tony Romo out for rest of season

Posted: Updated:

A report Monday said Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is out for the remainder of the 2013-14 season with a back injury, but head coach Jason Garrett would only say he's day-to-day.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday afternoon, per a league source, that a back injury sustained by Romo would keep him off the field. An MRI reportedly came back with bad results.

Garrett said at a Monday afternoon press conference the team would "evaluate on a day by day basis" Romo's status.

"We have not made that determination at all at this point," Garrett said when asked if Romo would miss Sunday's game.

Garrett did say the team is likely to sign another quarterback. FOXSports1 reported Monday night that free agent QB David Carr will visit Cowboys this week. Carr previously played for the Houston Texans and New York Giants.

QB Kyle Orton is the current backup for Romo on the roster.

Romo led a come-from-behind drive in the final minutes of Sunday's game for Dallas to beat Washington 24-23.

Dallas plays Philadelphia this Sunday at AT&T Stadium for the NFC East title and a playoff spot.
