Cowboys QB Tony Romo Expected To Miss 8-10 Weeks With Broken Collarbone


ESPN’s Adam Schefter updates the timetable for Cowboys QB Tony Romo following his broken clavicle by reporting that the expectation is that he’ll miss 8-10 weeks.

  • Ian Rapoport mentioned that the Cowboys do have their short-term injured reserve spot available, which they could use on Romo.


X-rays showed that Cowboys QB Tony Romo does, in fact, have a fractured left clavicle, according to the Cowboys.

  • Pro Football Talk has spoken to a source who said that the early estimate for Romo is that he’ll miss eight weeks.
  • Jason La Canfora confirms the eight-week projection for Romo’s timetable.
  • Erin Andrews reports that Romo will undergo further testing on Monday in Dallas.

According to former NFL physcian David Chao, the best-case scenario for Romo would be that he misses 4-6 weeks. However, he could be out as many as 10-12 weeks, depending on how the bone heals.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo was forced from Sunday’s game after he suffered what appeared to be an injury to his left shoulder/collarbone.

Romo was immediately taken to the locker room for X-rays, which implies that this could be a potentially serious injury for the Cowboys’ quarterback.

Erin Andrews reports that Romo believed he had broken something while walking off the field to the locker room. According to Andrews, Romo left the locker room with his pads off.

It’s worth mentioning that Brandon Weeden is the only active quarterback for Sunday’s game.

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

Coming into today’s game, Romo had completed 36 of 45 passing attempts for 356 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

We’ll have more updates regarding Romo’s injury as the news is available.
