Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not have surgery on his fractured left clavicle and will be out for around eight weeks, according to Pro Football Talk.
Romo confirmed that he wouldn't need surgery in a tweet on Monday.
Romo suffered the injury after being driven into the ground by a defender in the third quarter of the team's 20–10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Romo also suffered a broken left clavicle during the sixth game of the 2010 season. He was estimated to miss 6-8 weeks, but ended up missing the rest of the season.
Romo had thrown for 551 yards and 3 touchdowns through the first two games before suffering the injury. He was also completing 75 percent of his passes.
Brandon Weeden threw a touchdown as Romo's replacement Sunday and will be the Cowboys starter moving forward. Weeden is 5–16 in his career as a starter.
Thank you for all your prayers and support. No surgery needed. We're just getting started cowboys nation. See you soon— Tony Romo (@tonyromo) September 21, 2015
