Bad news Cowboys fans… Tony Romo has suffered a broken left clavicle and the team has announced that he could miss anywhere between 8-10 weeks which could essentially end his season.
Romo had x-rays in the second quarter after suffering the injury and it looks like he will need surgery.
With 12:07 left in the second quarter, Romo fired a pass to Miles Austin, then took the hard hit from linebacker Michael Boley, who was running at him unblocked, going practically full speed. Romo was down, flat on his back, until trainers came to his aid.
He was replaced by Jon Kitna, and the the crowd at Cowboys Stadium is as silent as a graveyard.
This could wipe out the rest of the season for the Cowboys, and with the trade deadline now passed the Cowboys are left to scramble for a solution.
It’s sad to see, and I don’t want to point fingers, but why did the Cowboys elect not to upgrade the offensive line, Romo’s first line of protection?
Get well soon Tony.
