Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is out for the remainder of the season.
Romo left Thursday’s game against the Panthers after re-injuring his left clavicle. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that Tony Romo has a hairline fracture in his left clavicle that will not require surgery, but will force him to be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Romo was injured after being tackled by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis in the third quarter. He immediately clutched his left shoulder. Romo missed seven games with that exact injury before returning in Week 11.
Even after being medically cleared to play a fracture of the clavicle carries a risk of re-injury for up to 6 months.
Tony Romo is expected to make a full recovery before the start of training camp.
