So much for that amazing Eagles/Cowboys game that we were going to get next Sunday night. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tony Romo won't be able to play in it because of a back injury he suffered yesterday:

This is obviously a huge loss for Dallas and means that Romo's backup Kyle Orton will likely get the start. Stay tuned for more details.
