Garrett Says Possible Surgery for Romo Hasn’t Been Decided Upon

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said doctors have assured the team that quarterback Tony Romo’s twice-broken collarbone is healing properly and any surgery to plate it would be strictly precautionary, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Speaking at media night at the Senior Bowl, where his staff is coaching one of the teams, Garrett said no decision has been made on whether Romo will have surgery.

Asked if there’s any reason to think Romo won’t return to 100% with or without surgery, Garrett said: “No, we don’t really have any concerns about that. We think it’s going to strengthen and that’s one of the things the doctors have talked about.

“So, if he goes ahead and does (have surgery), it’s only because we think it’s going to help him stay healthy longer. But again, I think that’ll be an elective surgery if in fact he does that.”

ESPN reported Sunday the Cowboys and Romo are planning for him to have surgery to reduce the risk of future injuries, with a CT scan scheduled next week to determine if enough healing has taken place to support the hardware.

    I’m hoping the Cowboys have Romo under center all season, but they gotta shore up that backup QB spot as a contingency
