The Dallas Cowboys lost quarterback Tony Romo to a broken collarbone over the weekend. It is just the latest major injury suffered by a star player on the team — Dez Bryant went down in the season-opener — and they will now be without the signal-caller for the next eight to ten weeks.
There is some good news, however, with Romo confirming he will not need surgery.
Thank you for all your prayers and support. No surgery needed. We're just getting started cowboys nation. See you soon

If Romo is able to return after eight games, he will return around the same time as Bryant.
In the meantime, Dallas has some work to do in order to provide depth behind Brandon Weeden. Dallas currently has only one healthy quarterback following the injury, so they will be in the market for a veteran sooner rather than later.
