Cowboys QB Tony Romo Out For Season
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss the rest of the season, after re-breaking his left collarbone.
The 35-year-old suffered the injury after being sacked by linebacker Thomas Davis, during the Cowboys' 33-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thanksgiving Day. During the hit, Davis landed on top of Romo, driving the quarterback's shoulder into the artificial turf.
According to ESPN, X-rays on Romo's injured left collarbone were inconclusive Thursday (Nov. 26), but sources say he's "done for the season".
"We wouldn't let Tony play if he wasn't ready to play physically," coach Garrett said. "There is no evidence we brought him back too soon. We'll look at what the tests say [Friday], and we'll make the evaluation going forward."
Romo returned from a broken collarbone just two games ago. He missed seven games after breaking his collarbone against the Eagles in September... and also missed the final 10 games of the 2010 season when he broke the same collarbone in a loss to the New York Giants.
Since Romo's first career start in 2006, the Cowboys are 78-49 when he starts and 6-16 when he doesn't.
