Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will undergo surgery to stabilize his collarbone next week, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Romo and the Cowboys had acknowledged that the procedure was an option, but no decision was made as of earlier this week. On Wednesday, Romo underwent a CT scan, the results of which would determine how the quarterback proceeded from there.
Apparently, he’ll have surgery, but we don’t know exactly what kind yet. The Mumford procedure, which involves shaving or removing part of the clavicle at the shoulder, was on the table, as was a procedure involving the insertion of a plate.
Romo said he was leaning toward the plate last week.
"We're asking a lot of people to get enough data to figure out," Romo said. "The reality of it is, it's a collarbone and if the collarbone doesn't hurt, I should be good to go to play out the final four to five years. That's all we're trying to ensure."
