Tony Romo to miss Cardinals broadcast due to COVID-19 protocols
Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams fans won’t be hearing CBS analyst Tony Romo’s voice over the televised broadcast this Sunday.
Romo will miss the Cardinals-Rams game due to coronavirus protocol, CBS announced Saturday. It is unknown if the former Cowboys quarterback tested positive or is part of contact tracing and was exposed to the virus.
Boomer Esiason will step in for Romo and join Jim Nantz in the booth.
Romo joined CBS as an NFL color analyst in 2017 after retiring.
Arizona’s matchup against the Rams will decide which team will make the playoffs.
If the Cardinals win, they will either be the No. 6 or No. 7 seed, depending on the outcome of the Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears game.
If the Cardinals lose, they will not make the postseason.
Kickoff is Sunday at 2:25 p.m. Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
