The Dallas Cowboys look set to be without quarterback Tony Romo for eight to ten weeks after he suffered a broken left collarbone.
The 35-year-old sustained the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's clash against the Philadelphia Eagles as he scrambled for a fumble. Romo suffered the same injury, but to his right clavicle, in week seven of the 2010 season, and injury which saw him miss the remainder of the campaign.
However, with the injury having occurred on his non-throwing arm on this occasion, there is hope that Romo's recovery time will be considerably shorter.
"I felt it," Romo said of the injury. "It has a little bit of a pop to it. Obviously I've felt it before. Your body kind of goes into a little bit of shock."
Brandown Weeden replaced Romo and completed all seven passes, including 42-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, as the Cowboys won 20-10 to go 2-0 for the season.
