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.
Rockies recalled LHP Chris Rusin from Triple-A Albuquerque.
With the Rockies' doubleheader Wednesday, they are allotted a 26th man for the roster and they've opted to go with Rusin as an extra arm for the bullpen. He hasn't exactly looked his best down at Triple-A this season -- 6.23 ERA, 1.84 WHIP, 10:5 K:BB over 21 2/3 innings (four starts) -- but he's only up for the short run here. Analysis: Howard Bender
