Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to miss six to eight weeks with broken collarbone
Romo, who suffered the injury on a hard hit by New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley early in the second quarter of the Cowboys' 41-35 loss Monday night, is expected to miss six to eight weeks with the fractured clavicle.
A six-week absence would have Romo back for the final four games of what is starting to look like a lost season for the 1-5 Cowboys.
Veteran backup Jon Kitna completed 16 of 33 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns after Romo left the game Monday night.
