A Tuesday morning CT scan revealed that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss between six-to-eight weeks with his fractured left clavicle, Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports.
The 1-5 Cowboys already had their bye week, and have 10 games left in the regular season. While their playoff chances all but ended in the second quarter of last night’s 41-35 loss to the New York Giants, but Dallas may not rush their decision on whether or not to place him on injured reserve.
If Romo is able to make it back in six weeks, and if Jon Kitna can somehow cobble together some wins, the Cowboys will have their franchise quarterback for the final month of the regular season, which features three games against NFC East opponents.
Watkins adds that the Cowboys lost back-up defensive end Jason Hatcher for 4-to-6 weeks with a groin strain.
