As if losing Dez Bryant to a broken foot last week wasn’t bad enough, the Cowboys were dealt an even bigger blow in week 2 as QB Tony Romo will be sidelined for at least 10 weeks with a broken collarbone in his non-throwing shoulder. The same injury he suffered in 2010.
The injury came in the third quarter of the win over the Eagles and Brandon Weeden stepped in to take over. This injury came just hours after reported surfaced that Dez will be out 10-12 weeks, rather than the 4-6 weeks that we were initially told. Expect them back at the same time.
Romo suffered his latest injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s 20-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
He is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks based on preliminary indications, according to a source.
Romo was hurt with 9:44 left in the third quarter after a sack by blitzing Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks.
“I felt it,” Romo said, his arm in a sling. “It had a little bit of a pop to it. Obviously, I’ve felt it before. Your body goes into a little bit of shock and you just have to wait it out for a second to come back.”
