Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's season is officially over due to back surgery. Backup Kyle Orton will take over for the rest of the season.


Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told news reporters Friday morning that Romo underwent back surgery and he will be on injured reserve.


That confirms what an inside source said to USA TODAY Sports on Monday. “Romo is done for the season and Orton will start Sunday's NFC East title game against the Philadelphia Eagles.”


Romo suffered a herniated disk during last week's comeback win over the Washington Redskins. As a result, Orton who hasn't started a game since 2011 with the Kansas City Chief will be playing Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Orton will be playing in the spotlight on primetime Sunday night football.


The Dallas Cowboys signed John Kitna out of retirement to back up Orton against the Eagles for this Sunday's primetime finale.
