Report: Cowboys' Tony Romo could shave off part of collarbone
Tuesday February 23rd, 2016

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is considering undergoing an operation to shave down a portion of his collarbone, rather than having it plated, reports Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News

The surgery, known as a Mumford procedure, is used to reduce pain where the clavicle and shoulder meet. 

Despite being the preferred procedure by Romo and the team, an official decision about which operation he will undergo has not yet been made.

Romo will have a six-to-eight week recovery period regardless of which surgery he has.

Report: Saints likely to release WR Marques Colston

The 35-year-old played in just four games last season due to two separate fractures in his left clavicle. The Cowboys (4–12) finished last in the NFC East.
