    Once And For All: Tony Romo To Address Collarbone

    I don't know about you, but I'm getting really tired of looking at my feed and seeing the phrases “” and “6-8 weeks” in the same tweet. It happened in 2010, when we got to experience the magic of , and again last year… twice. Now, if it said, “Tony Romo's new baby due in 6-8 weeks,” that'd be one thing.

After perusing Google images for clavicle surgery plates, I can tell you that I believe this surgery looks the most promising… and really gross. Obviously I'm no doctor, but the plate has the same curvature as the bone itself, and can extend the full length of the bone.

    Having the surgery early next week should supply the Cowboys with enough time to give Romo proper recovery time and rehab to have him ready to throw at the start of . With likely to be fully recuperated by this time as well, the Cowboys should have their top two offensive weapons available for full workouts.
