    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Next evaluation will determine if surgery is needed

    Romo will be evaluated in late February or early March to determine if surgery is necessary on his left collarbone, The Dallas Morning News reports. Before undergoing a CT scan last week, Romo fully expected to have surgery at some point in the offseason, but the Cowboys now have some options to ponder. If the team opts for the first one, a set of screws will attach a plate over the collarbone in order to stabilize the area and avoid another fracture. As for the second choice, if the next CT scan reveals a suitable amount of bone growth and regeneration to last week's base line, he may undergo a Mumford procedure, in which part of "the distal clavicle is shaved off or removed." The latter procedure is preferable, as it reduces long-term stress on the collarbone versus the attachment of a plate. No matter which path Romo takes, he'll face a 6-to-8 week recovery, setting him up to take part in the entire offseason program.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Expects to have surgery on collarbone

    Romo expects to undergo surgery on his left collarbone in the offseason, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "We've had exhaustive discussions about it," he said Saturday. "It's going to be good." Romo has endured a fractured left clavicle on three occasions since the 2010 season, including a pair of instances in the most recent campaign. After an upcoming CT scan to learn whether his shoulder can handle a plate and screws, the subsequent surgery will presumably stabilize the region in order to avoid a similar injury in the future. If the Cowboys opt for the procedure, he'll be facing a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 weeks, which should allow him to participate in OTAs this spring.

    Cowboys QB Tony Romo will have CT scan

    Romo (collarbone) said he will have a CT scan next week to determine whether surgery is necessary on his shoulder, NBCDFW's Pat Doney reports. The scan is to verify that Romo's recovery from the third break of his left clavicle is going as hoped, with the shoulder procedure referenced presumably only occurring if an adjustment of some sort is necessary. Between his age (36 in April) and the propensity he's shown for re-injuring the clavicle, Romo's durability will be a concern in 2016 regardless of the exact pace and nature of his current recovery.

    Cowboys place Tony Romo on injured reserve

    Romo (collarbone) was placed on injured reserve Friday, reports. It was announced earlier this week that Romo would be placed on injured reserve, and the Cowboys made the move Friday, officially bringing Romo's season to a close. Kellen Moore will start at quarterback for the Cowboys in Week 16, and chances are he will do the same in Week 17.

    Cowboys to place QB Tony Romo on IR

    Romo (collarbone) will be placed on injured reserve this week, the Cowboys' official site reports. Romo was limited to only four appearances this season due to a broken left clavicle sustained in Week 2 and a subsequent hairline fracture in that clavicle in Week 12. His absence has forced a revolving door at quarterback, which has so far landed on Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel, and current starter Kellen Clemons. With Romo's fate sealed, Clemons will get the nod for the Cowboys' final two games.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Won't be placed on IR yet

    Romo (collarbone) won't be placed on injured reserve due to the Cowboys' slight odds of a playoff appearance, David Helman of the team's official site reports. Although the Cowboys fell to 3-8 with Thursday's loss to the Panthers, they remain just two games behind NFC East-leading Washington and the Giants, who hold matching 5-6 records. In essence, the Cowboys control their own destiny with two matchups remaining with Washington, but a loss on Monday night in Landover, MD would likely be the final nail in the coffin for the 2015 season. In any case, Romo will continue his recovery from the hairline fracture in his left clavicle suffered against Carolina with the hopes that he'll be able to suit up over the next two months.

    Report: Cowboys QB Tony Romo will miss remainder of season

    Romo will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a hairline fracture to his left clavicle Friday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. Romo's clavicle won't actually require surgery but he'll still need to sit out the rest of the season after sustaining the break during Thursday's loss to the Panthers. Matt Cassel will seemingly take over from here on out as the Cowboys fade out of playoff contention after Romo's second left clavicle injury in just a matter of months.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Set for MRI Friday, but likely out for season

    Romo (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Friday for his left clavicle injury after preliminary X-rays following Thursday's loss to the Panthers were inconclusive, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. However, a source close to the situation told Werder that Romo is "done for the season." Romo fell hard on his left shoulder when he was sacked to the ground at the end of the third quarter, and it seems to be a foregone conclusion that he suffered a fracture of the same clavicle for the second time this season. The Cowboys aren't expected to formally rule Romo out for the season until after the results of Friday's scans are read, but his fantasy owners should begin the process of assessing other options at the quarterback spot. Matt Cassel came on for Romo in the fourth quarter of Thursday's game and is expected to assume the starting job for the remainder of the season.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Diagnosed with left clavicle injury

    Romo was quickly ruled out from returning to Thursday's game against the Panthers after team trainers diagnosed him with a left clavicle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Romo ended the game with 11 completions on 21 attempts for 106 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions. The fact that the Cowboys are already specifying a particular bone as it pertains to Romo's injury is not a good sign for the quarterback, who previously fractured his clavicle in a Week 2 game against the Eagles and missed the Cowboys' next seven contests. Romo, who suffered the injury when he fell on his shoulder after being sacked by the Panthers' Thomas Davis, will still undergo the necessary X-rays before another fracture is confirmed, but it's believed that another long absence is in store for Romo. The Cowboys were trailing 30-6 when Romo departed at the end of the third quarter and look poised to fall to 3-8, which would effectively quash their playoff hopes, especially if Romo ends up missing the remainder of the season. Matt Cassel replaced Romo in Thursday's game and will likely take over as the starting quarterback if Romo is indeed ruled out for the Week 13 matchup with Washington.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Leaves Thursday's game after falling on shoulder

    Romo left the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Panthers when he landed hard on his left shoulder as the third quarter expired, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports. Romo was brought to the ground on a Thomas Davis sack and fell on the same shoulder that he suffered a broken clavicle in Week 2, which sidelined him for three games. With the Cowboys trailing 30-6 at the time of Romo's departure, he won't return to the game, and it seems plausible that he suffered another significant injury. There won't be official word on the exact nature of Romo's injury until he receives X-rays from team trainers, but as he was exiting the field, he seemed to be holding his arm in a manner that suggested he may have sustained another fracture. Romo had been in the midst of a terrible day, completing 11-of-21 passes for 106 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions -- two of which were pick-sixes. Matt Cassel came on to replace Romo in the game and would be set to take back the starting job for the Week 13 matchup against Washington if Romo ends up being sidelined.
