The Eagles' week took an unexpected turn around 4:30 p.m. yesterday, when ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Tony Romo's season was over because of a back injury. (Dallas coach Jason Garrett later said no final decision has been made, but he confirmed his quarterback had an MRI, apparently for a herniated disk.)

"I don't believe that. Are you for sure?" Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said to co-host Anthony Gargano, when Gargano told the NFL's leading rusher the news, early in McCoy's 94WIP radio show.

Like many Eagles fans who expressed their misgivings on social media, McCoy did not exult.

"I would love to have Romo out there. You want your best. You want everybody" playing in the showdown for the NFC East title, McCoy said. "You wait this long and put everything into it? The hard training in the offseason, get the new coach . . . We're finally here at the last game . . . You put all your chips on the table . . . We're all in."
