X-rays show that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s left collarbone is still fractured, ESPNDallas.com’s Calvin Watkins reports.
Romo was injured during the second quarter of the Cowboys’ 41-35 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football in Week 7. The injury was supposed to sideline Romo for six-to-eight weeks, but the Cowboys have not placed Romo on injured reserve in the hope that he could return for the final month of the regular season.
Watkins adds that Romo is expected to miss at least another three weeks.
Veteran quarterback Jon Kitna has completed 63.3% of his 158 pass attempts for 1,223 yards with 10 touchdowns and 7 interceptions in the 4 1/2 games since Romo’s injury. Kitna has six touchdown passes over the last weeks, helping the Cowboys to a two-game winning streak headed into their Thanksgiving Day game against the New Orleans Saints.
