According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will have surgery in the next two weeks on the collarbone he broke twice during Dallas' 4-12 2015 season.
According to the report, recovery is 6-8 weeks.
Romo broke his clavicle in a Week 2 win against the Eagles and didn't return until Nov. 22, when the Cowboys snapped a seven-game losing streak in his absence. The following week, Romo reinjured the collarbone against the Panthers and was done for the season.
In 2014, Romo and the Cowboys went 12-4 and were one controversial Dez Bryant non-catch away from making it to the NFC championship game but fell to the Packers at Lambeau. The bottom fell out without Romo in 2015, and now there is much speculation the Cowboys, with the No. 4 pick in the NFL Draft, will select a quarterback to groom for the future.
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said "I think it's important for us to see the X-Ray, and we'll make some decisions from there," Garrett said, via the Star-Telegram. "Like with any player, you just want to make sure that you're doing everything that you can to help the player be as healthy as he can be."
