According to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, nothing is set in stone yet where the health of his collarbone is concerned.
Romo made an appearance on Pro Football Talk Live on Friday from Radio Row in San Francisco, and when the topic of the collarbone came up, Romo reminded his hosts that it’s far from guaranteed that he’ll have another procedure to have a plate affixed to the bone—and, hopefully, prevent future breaks.
(But it still sounds like he’s leaning toward the surgery.)
“There’s no conclusive anything,” Romo said. “I think you just want to make sure—a silly thing in some ways, I understand it’s an injury—but a little collarbone which really hurts our football team and our season when that happens. I just want to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
In 2015, Romo appeared in just four games, and broke the collarbone twice. He has now broken the bone three times in his career.
