Tony Romo’s Clavicle Has Healed, Will Play On Sunday

For about two months, the have been without their leader and simply their best player. A fractured collarbone has sidelined for eight weeks, seven of which were games ended in a loss. However, according to Ed Werder of , the 35-year-old is in shape to start his first game this weekend against the for the first time since Week 2 against the .

With a healthy Romo, the Cowboys now have all of their players back from injury, well except for , who tore his ACL over the , and maybe even , who is still receiving tests for what could be a season-ending hamstring injury.
