- According to Desmond Purnell, Romo said he’s “leaning” towards having the plate inserted, but a CT scan will be the determining factor.
Last we heard, Brandon George reported that Romo was “leaning” towards undergoing a Mumford procedure on his left clavicle rather than attaching a plate to his collarbone.
However, it appears as though the Romo may have changed his mind.
Both the Mumford procedure and attaching the plate would require a six- to eight-week recovery period, so his status for Week 1 wouldn’t be in jeopardy.
Romo, 35, is in the third year of his seven-year, $119.5 million contract that included $55 million guaranteed.
He unfortunately sustained multiple fractures to his collarbone this season, and had been expected to be placed on injured reserve for a few weeks now.
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.
