Next weekend, Tony Romo will play in his fourth-ever PGA Tour event. He’s never made the cut in one, but if he does, he’ll have to miss work on Sunday.
Romo is participating in the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif. next weekend. If he makes the cut, he will be playing in the final round on Sunday and won’t be able to call Vikings-Bears on CBS, according to the New York Post.
CBS has not revealed who would fill in for Romo and team up with Jim Nantz if that happens. However, they did tell the Post’s Andrew Marchand they have a plan in place for those circumstances.

At the end of the day though, the odds of Romo clearing the cut line are slim. He’s a quality golfer, but not on the level of a professional at this point.
Assuming he’s done with the Safeway Open after two days, Romo will fly to Chicago for Vikings-Bears as scheduled. Kickoff for that game is set for 4:25 p.m. ET and will be nationally televised.
The former star quarterback is in his third season as the lead game analyst for CBS.
He and Nantz have become arguably the top broadcasting team in the NFL.
