Cowboy’s Tony Romo knocked out of game with clavicle fracture

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.

The team said tests revealed a clavicle fracture – also known as a broken collarbone – an injury that could see him miss the remainder of the 2010/11 regular season.

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.

The Cowboys were defeated 41-35 in their match against the New York Giants in Dallas.
