After undergoing a CT scan this morning, it appears that quarterback Tony Romo will miss between six to eight weeks with the broken left clavicle he suffered in the first half of last night’s loss to the Giants.
Romo will not need surgery. This means he could return as early as the Dec. 12 game against Philadelphia but, at that point, there will likely be little reason to take any risks with the health of the franchise quarterback.
There was more bad news for Dallas in the aftermath of Monday night: Jason hatcher suffered a strained groin in the game and will likely miss the next four to six weeks. Montrae Holland, who started Monday in place of injured left guard Kyle Kosier, went down with a groin strain and is listed as day-to-day.
A CT scan revealed that cornerback Terence Newman suffered some rib bruising, but he is OK.
