Tony Romo limped so badly on one play against Washington Sunday, he barely made it to the spot where he had to hand off.
The obvious limp was gone by the time the Dallas quarterback moved forward in the pocket and threw a fourth-down touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray that gave Dallas a season-saving 24-23 win over the Redskins.
The severity of his back injury is likely to remain a question all week as the Cowboys prepare for their third straight season finale for the NFC East title and a playoff berth, this time against Philadelphia on Sunday night.
Responding to reports that Romo wouldn’t play against the Eagles, coach Jason Garrett said Monday the team had ‘‘not made that determination at all at this point.’’
Garrett wouldn’t reveal the results of an MRI for Romo, 33, who had back surgery to remove a cyst in April and missed offseason workouts. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
