Tony Romo Out for 8 to 10 Games with Broken Collar Bone
The Dallas Cowboys playoff chances took a series blow on Sunday as starting quarterback Tony Romo will miss the next two to three months of the season after a sack ended up breaking his collar bone. Ironically Romo missed over two months of the 2010 campaign with a similar injury. Tony Romo prior to his injury was completing 75% of his throws for 551 yards with three touchdowns and two picks.
Dallas will be forced to play backup quarterback Brandon Weeden. The fourth year pro from Oklahoma St is already 31 years old because he started college much later than usual. He does have maturity on his side. In relief of Romo on Sunday against the Eagles the signal caller hit on 7 of 7 throws for 73 yards with a touchdown. He is a career 56% passer who has thrown 27 touchdowns and 28 picks. Prior to playing in Dallas the past two seasons, Weeden spent two years with the Cleveland Browns. The Cowboys defense was outstanding last week in limiting the Philadelphia Eagles to just 10 points in the Dallas win. The Cowboys moved to 2-0 on the year.
