Report: Cowboys QB Tony Romo will sit out of practice this week

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not be practicing this week.

Injured Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not practice this week, reports Rand Getlin of NFL Network.

Romo sustained a fractured collarbone during the Cowboys’ Week 2 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Romo did not have surgery to help heal his injury and was projected to be out for eight weeks.

Despite reports that the quarterback would be returning to practice sooner than expected, Getlin reports that Romo likely needs to the full eight weeks to recover before he can begin playing again.

Romo threw for 551 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in two games before his injury.

The Cowboys have not won a single game in Romo’s absence, falling to the Seattle Seahawks, 13–12, on Sunday for their fifth straight loss.

Dallas is set to take on the Eagles (3–4) next Sunday.
