Cowboys Officially Placing QB Tony Romo Season-Ending I.R.

The Dallas Cowboys are officially placing QB Tony Romo on season-ending injured reserve this week now that they’ve been eliminated from playoff contention, according to Jon Machota.

Dallas had been holding on making the move in case they happened to win the NFC East, which would have bought Romo enough time to return from his broken clavicle.

However, the Cowboys only managed to win a single game without Romo, and are now prepared to start Kellen Moore in Week 16’s game to see what he can do with the opportunity.

Romo, 35, is in the third year of his seven-year, $119.5 million contract that included $55 million guaranteed.

In 2015, Romo threw for 884 yards while completing 68.6 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and seven interceptions over the course of four games for the Cowboys.
