Whether or not Tony Romo (back) will be ready for the Dallas Cowboys' Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles remains to be seen, but preparations have already begun in the event he's unable to go. On Tuesday, the team worked out several quarterbacks, including former New York Giants back-up, David Carr.
In addition to Carr, who also worked out for the Tennessee Titans earlier this season, the Cowboys hosted free agent quarterbacks Tyler Thigpen, Caleb Hanie and John Skelton. Ultimately, however, the team opted to sign the 41-year-old Jon Kitna to be their third/emergency quarterback.
Kitna, who retired following the 2011 season and spent the last two years of his career in Dallas, was, ironically, replaced by Kyle Orton, who would be the Cowboys' starter this Sunday in the event Romo is unable to play.
The Cowboys and Eagles square off in a game that will decide the NFC East champion. The loser, very much like the Giants, will be spending the playoffs at home on the couch.
