Cowboys QB Romo has broken collarbone

The news is not good for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who didn’t even last a half vs the New York Giants in their critical Monday night showdown in Dallas.

Word is that Romo has a broken collarbone, an injury that usually takes about 8 to 10 weeks to recover from, meaning his season is likely over.

Romo was drilled into the turf on his left shoulder early in the second quarter Monday night, forcing him to the locker room for X-rays.

Romo fired a pass to Miles Austin, then took the hard hit from linebacker Michael Boley, who was running at him unblocked, going practically full speed. Romo was down, flat on his back, until trainers came to his aid.

Last season Romo took every snap last season making now QB Jon Kitna the NFL’s only No. 2 quarterback not to play—and had done so through five games this season. Romo had been 5 of 7 for 39 yards with a touchdown pass.
