NFL Injury News: Tony Romo out for the rest of the season after re-injuring collarbone

Looks like the Cowboys are done. Tony Romo is out after being sacked in the third quarter of the Thanksgiving match against the Carolina Panthers. Luke Kuechly was all over Romo for most of the third quarter, but after one particularly heavy sack from Thomas Davis, Romo stayed down. He was replaced in the fourth quarter by the Cowboys sole remaining quarterback, Matt Cassell. Reports coming back indicate that Romo is out with a potential fracture to the left clavicle, which is the injury he only just came back from against the Dolphins. We called this in an article last week, as a massive gamble by the Cowboys. Firing one of their quarterbacks, and bringing Romo back early to try and turn the season around was a major risk. That risk was meant to be mitigated by protecting Romo from the defensive rush, and letting him ease his way back in – then they had to go against the undefeated Panthers and their aggressive defence. That’s where it all fell apart, and now the Cowboys are looking at seeing out the rest of the season presumably starting the same quarterback who started three of the seven game losing streak that they suffered after Romo was initially put out. Picking up an aggravation of a healing injury could be a career impacting issue for Romo, and devastating to the Cowboys long term, so the front office is going to need to take a sombre look at what was behind the call to bring Romo back so early, and what the potential options are for the rest of the season.
