Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports the Dallas Cowboys will be placing quarterback Tony Romo on injured reserve.
Romo has been out since fracturing his collarbone in a Week 7 loss to the New York Giants.
The Cowboys hadn’t made a move with Romo, who was expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, with the hope that he could return for the final few weeks of the regular season, and possibly a playoff run. Dallas has rallied, but are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, and there’s no reason to play their franchise quarterback in the final two regular season games.
On the season, Romo completed 148-of-213 pass attempts for 1,605 yards, with 11 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, compiling a passer rating of 94.9.
Dallas was 1-5 in games Romo started this season.
