NEW YORK — Tony Romo will not be in the broadcast booth on the final day of the NFL regular season Sunday after being sidelined by “COVID-19 protocols,” the network said.

CBS Sports posted the news with a short tweet on its “CBS Sports PR” Twitter feed on Saturday afternoon. No other information was provided.

The network said that Boomer Esiason, who normally is in CBS’ New York studio for “The NFL Today,” will team with Jim Nantz at SoFi Stadium calling the Cardinals-Rams game.

Romo joins NBC’s Al Michaels as a member of a network’s top announcing crew to be sidelined this season due to COVID-19 protocols. Michaels did not work the Dec. 20 Browns-Giants game.
