Schefter: Cowboys Tony Romo Fractures Left Clavicle On Monday Night Football

This news could end up being a game changer in the NFC East playoff picture. Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was injured in the second quarter of tonight's Monday Night Football game against the Giants. NYG LB Michael Boley basically had a free shot at Romo and drive him hard into the turf. Romo's shoulder was obviously what he was favoring after the hit and now it's being reported that he has a fractured left clavicle.

He will not return to the game tonight and ESPN is saying that the recovery time for an injury such as this is eight to ten weeks. So essentially, Romo's season could be over. The Cowboys didn't seem like a team that was going to threaten for a division title but they certainly would have been a tough matchup later in the season. With Jon Kitna at quarterback, I don't think anyone is going to fear them.

[Update by JasonB, 10/25/10 10:50 PM EDT ] Yahoo Sports is calling the injury a broken collarbone.
