Ouch! The Dallas Cowboys faced the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 20. It was the second game of the NFL season, but it may be the last one Tony Romo plays in 2015. The Cowboys’ quarterback broke his collarbone in the game’s second half! Click to watch!
Poor Tony Romo! The 35-year-old quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys started off the NFL season strong, helping his team beat the New York Giants in their first game. But, things got scary for fans of the Cowboys when the team played the Philadelphia Eagles. Tony had to leave the game with a broken collarbone after a vicious hit!
Tony and the rest of the Cowboys rolled into Philly for a Sept. 20 match-up with the Eagles. In the game’s third quarter, Tony was sacked by Eagles’ linebacker Jordan Hicks, and oh boy — Tony went down hard. He was escorted out of the game. The Cowboys announced that he suffered a broken left clavicle, reports NFL.com. Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden then had to take over and he helped the Cowboys win, 20-10.
Ouch! Tony’s injury is being evaluated and the Cowboys will release a timeline for his recovery on Sept. 21. The Cowboys don’t want to make any rash decisions until they find out if he’ll be able to come back and play this season.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Tony has broken his collarbone. The quarterback suffered a similar injury in 2010. Tony’s fracture happened in Week 7, and he was forced to miss the rest of the year. This time around, Tony got injured much earlier, so there’s a chance he could return before the season ends.
The Cowboys don’t need any more injuries. They lost their wide receiver, Dez Bryant, to a foot fracture. The season is only two games in and the Cowboys are down two star players. Yikes! Cowboys fans are hoping this is the last major injury their team suffers!
Get well soon, Tony! Are you hoping Tony recovers quickly so he can come back and play, HollywoodLifers? Are you a Cowboys fans.
