IRVING -- If it was up to Tony Romo, he would play the entire season finale Sunday in Washington.
But the game means nothing to the Dallas Cowboys. They've
already wrapped up the division, a first-round bye and home games
all the way until the Super Bowl. That means they hardly have
anything left to play for Sunday.
Maybe they could get fired up about getting a club-record 14th
win and keeping the Redskins from clinching a playoff berth. Or
maybe they'll want to end a two-game losing streak in Washington.
Coach Wade Phillips continued to be evasive today about who will
play and how long they'll go. About the only specifics are that
injured wide receiver Terrell Owens is out and returning wide
receiver Terry Glenn should be in.
Phillips says he's likely to err on the side of caution with
other injured Cowboys: center Andre Gurode, nose tackle Jay
Ratliff, cornerback Terence Newman and safety Patrick Watkins.
A bruised thumb could be an excuse for Romo getting a day off.
