Cowboys QB Romo misses work Wednesday

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo missed practice Wednesday because he was ill, an absence that comes days before a game Dallas must win to make the playoffs.

The Cowboys (9-6) play at Philadelphia on Sunday. They're guaranteed of getting an NFC wild card with a victory.

Romo has been limited by a back injury and earlier this season missed three games with a broken pinkie on his throwing hand. He said Tuesday he would be ready to play.

"It's December," he said. "Everybody plays with different things. It's part of the game."
