Dallas Coach Jason Garrett said Tony Romo hasn’t been ruled out for a winner-take-all finale against Philadelphia after injuring his back against Washington.

Garrett said yesterday that Romo will get treatment and be evaluated daily. He added the Cowboys were looking to add a third quarterback behind backup Kyle Orton.

Romo injured his back in Sunday’s 24-23 win over Washington, which set up the Cowboys’ third straight regular-season finale with the NFC East title on the line. The 33-year-old Romo lost the previous two against the New York Giants and Redskins, and another one in 2008 against the Eagles.

Romo had back surgery in April and missed all the offseason workouts.

Orton hasn’t started a game since 2011.
