If Romo can’t play, the Cowboys might be without their offensive and defensive leaders. Sean Lee was hopeful last week he would return against the Eagles after missing two games with a sprained neck, but Garrett said Monday the linebacker’s outlook hadn’t changed.

Cornerback Morris Claiborne might be available. The top 10 pick from 2012 has missed six of the past seven games with hamstring issues, and his recovery was set back when he had to leave the team after the death of his father and the birth of his child.

“We just had a sense of urgency about ourselves,” defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said of beating Washington. “We just played with a lot of new guys back there and we knew what was at stake. We had to win this one, and we scratched and clawed.”

Now the Cowboys might have to win without the biggest name of all.
