Romo Out 6-8 Weeks; Cowboys Wounded

While the Cowboys have had one of the worst starts to a season I can remember, they did receive a little good news today, maybe. Tony Romo, who broke his left clavicle in last night’s disaster against New York, is likely to be out for only 6-8 weeks. Originally, some of the “doctors” in the media had predicted about an 8-10 week absence for the Cowboys star quarterback. While he may only be out as little as six weeks, the season’s story is likely to be written by then.

While no team has rebounded from a 1-5 start under the current format, the team keeps towing the party line about competing and getting out of the grind they are in. Jon Kitna will replace Romo at quarterback an try to turn this sinking ship around.

Romo wasn’t the only casualty in yesterday’s loss. CB Terrance Newman was examined today for the rib injury he sustained yesterday. While Newman returned to the game he did say that “the pain returned in the third quarter.” Newman had taken a shot to numb the pain so he could return. Also hurt in the game was G Montrae Holland, who had been filling in for Kyle Kosier. Holland strained his groin but is expected to play this week against Jacksonville. DT Jason Hatcher also hurt his groin and is questionable this week.
