Cowboys' Romo OK, Murray Doubtful for Sunday vs Eagles
The Dallas Cowboys got a scare against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday night, when on the final play of the game, Romo threw a pass to Felix Jones, but was tackled awkwardly and twisted himself as he fell to the ground. Romo strained his back, but Cowboys officials say Romo should be fine, and will play Sunday at the Philadelphia Eagles.
As for RB DeMarco Murray, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said that Murray (foot) has passed some but not all of the tests necessary before he's cleared to return to action, the Dallas Morning News reports. On Monday there were reports that Murray was out against the Eagles, but those reports have been upgraded to doubtful. Felix Jones is probable.
The Cowboys are 3-5 this season, and Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones told a Dallas radio station today he will stay GM of the Cowboys as long as he is the owner. Jones has won three Super Bowls with Dallas but is 123-124 with the team since 1997.
