Quarterback Tony Romo suffered a serious injury on Monday’s game against the Giants that may see him out of action for as many as 10 weeks.
Romo took the nasty knock in the second quarter when he was slammed by Giants linebacker Michael Boley and landed on his left side. He was replaced by Jon Kitna, 38.
Fractures of the clavicle are extremely common and are usually caused by direct impact falls. In the majority of cases surgical intervention can be avoided. Chances are that once Romo,20, has had an MRI, he will simply be asked to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and will be healed by December.
