This fits with previous reports that mentioned Romo is likely to be out 8-10 weeks after he broke his collarbone on Sunday.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys are likely to place QB Tony Romo on injured reserve with the designation to return if his CT scan confirms the initial diagnosis of a fractured collarbone.
Should the Cowboys end up placing him on I.R. with this designation, Romo would miss the next eight weeks of the season, but he could return to practice after six weeks.
Dallas wasted no time in announcing that Romo had sustained a broken collarbone, so odds are that they’ll go this route with their starting quarterback.
Brandon Weeden will be the team’s starter moving forward, but it would not be surprising to see them bring in another quarterback at some point this week.
Tomo, 35, is in the third year of his seven-year, $119.5 million contract that included $55 million guaranteed.
Over the course of two games, Romo has throw for 551 yards while completing 75 percent of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
We’ll have more updates regarding Romo’s injury as the news is available.
