NFL Injury: Dallas QB Fractures Clavicle, Oh No Romo
We’ve Heard the Story Before.
It’s a been a rough couple of weeks for the Cowboys and hey, it couldn’t happen to a better team. You never want to root for injuries. But honestly, if we read another story about Dallas as a Super Bowl contender, we were going to vomit. Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reported, “…Tony Romo suffered a broken left clavicle in the third quarter of their 20-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Romo landed on his shoulder, during a strip sack by linebacker Jordan Hicks.
Romo will be re-evaluated next week and currently, there is no timeline for his return. This is the 35-year-old quarterback second broken clavicle. He previously broke his left collarbone in Week 7 of 2010. Romo missed the remainder of the season. “I’ll be back,” Romo told FOX Sports’ Erin Andrews after the game. “It’s going to take a little bit of time. It’s a broken bone. It is what it is.” In the immediate future, Brandon Weeden will be taking the snaps for the Cowboys.
Cowboys fans and followers of the NFL will be asking themselves; Have we seen the last of Tony Romo? He’s on the back end of 30 and has not been able to stay healthy for the past few years. Is it time for America’s Team to move on. We hope so. Fantasy owners, adjust your rosters accordingly.
