Update: According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Tony Romo’s back has improved “only slightly” since receiving an epidural injection and other treatment.
Per Werder, Romo hasn’t attended practice, a team meeting, or a game-planning session this week. Which suggests that Romo has been spending a lot of time off his feet and in turn away from being actively involved in planning for the franchise’s latest playoff play-in game.
And so the signs continue to point strongly to Romo not playing and Kyle Orton getting the nod. Barring some sort of a miracle.
Carlos Gonzalez (knee) was removed from Friday's game for precautionary reasons.
To borrow one from Adam Carolla: Sssssssssssssssssssssshocking. Gonzalez has managed just 717 plate appearances combined in the last two years, and fantasy owners are all too familiar with his health woes. When healthy in the last two seasons, he's struck out a fair bit more than he ever has before, so we can longer treat CarGo as a top option when healthy. There's definitely upside, but it's hard to imagine him reaching it. Analysis: Brett Talley
