Out for two months
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo
broke his left collarbone Monday night, an injury that could end
Recovery time is generally 8 to 10 weeks. With the Cowboys at
1-4, there may not be any reason to rush back.
Romo fired a pass to Miles Austin, then took the hard hit from
Giants 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.
Romo took every snap last season - making Jon Kitna the NFL's
only No. 2 quarterback not to play - and had done so through five
games this season.
Kitna's first pass was swatted down at the line. His first
series ended with a field goal that stretched Dallas' lead to 13-7.
They were losing 21-20 when the diagnosis was announced.
Romo had been 5 of 7 for 39 yards with a touchdown pass.
The Cowboys also lost defensive end Jason Hatcher to a groin
