Cowboys still holding out hope for Romo return

Written by Chris Kolb

Topics: Dallas Cowboys, NFC East

With seven losses already on the books, the Cowboys aren’t likely to find their way into the post-season this season, but that hasn’t stopped them from doing everything they can to get quarterback Tony Romo back on the the field prior to the end of the year.

They’ll likely have to wait a bit longer though, as a source close to the team has indicated that Romo’s broken left collarbone is still fractured and will require at least three more weeks to heal properly.

The Cowboys passing game has been significantly limited since Romo was injured in week seven, and while he won’t be able to step right back into the fold and play extremely well, his return to the huddle would definitely open up the playbook for an offense that seems to have found a bit of rhythm in back to back victories.

At the very least, Dallas should have an opportunity to play the role of spoiler down the stretch, given that they’ll be going up against multiple teams with playoff aspirations as the season comes to a close, and having Romo on the field definitely gives them the best chance to win.
