Romo: Not conclusive that I’ll have collarbone surgery

Tony Romo AP

During his appearance on PFT Live from Radio Row in San Francisco on Friday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo confirmed a report that he’ll be waiting about a month before making a decision about having surgery on the left collarbone he broke twice during the 2015 season.

Romo said that the plan is to “find the bone density and see how strong it is and make a decision” three or four weeks from now about whether to have an operation.

“There’s no conclusive anything,” Romo said. “I think you just want to make sure — a silly thing in some ways, I understand it’s an injury — but a little collarbone which really hurts our football team and our season when that happens. I just want to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”

Romo said he’s otherwise healthy and that his sometimes balky back feels the best it’s felt in two or three years. He also reiterated that he’s fine with the Cowboys taking a quarterback with the fourth overall pick, saying that he learned a while ago that “if you’re worried about your job you’re probably not as good as you think.”

    might be time to draft a QB for the future and groom him behind Romo for a couple of years

    Well at least he has that lusty 2-4 playoff record.

    Romo has been a baller, despite Dallas not supporting him. Imagine him on a complete team. Guess he’s going natural healing in lieu of surgery. Good luck to him!

    Folks ranking on Romo don’t know good QB play. He was elusive as heck in the pocket before Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson arrived on the scene.

    Romo is one of the biggest busts ever in football.

    Jerry Jones keeps giving this crappy quarterback millions and millions of dollars for being crappy!!!

    “My Daddy, Jerry, is the best doctor in the whole world. Whatever he says, I will do. Mommy just made some good cookies. Would you like one?”

    Romo is many things. Baller, he is not.

    Tony, you’re not as good as you think.

    Paging Doctor/Coach/GM Jones

    Romo knows as soon as he has the surgery Dr. Jones will throw him back in danger, even with the season already over

    Orthopedic surgeon Jerrah consulted with physical therapist Jerrah who asked team trainer Jerrah,and they all decided to have more plastic surgery on their faces in lieu of surgery on Romo’s collarbone.

    Big John Football should elect to have a lobotomy

    Romo is the ultimate competitor.

    “…I just want to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”

    How’s it not going to break again? You’ve already proven you can’t take care of your collar bone. All the other quarterbacks aren’t having that problem. Tom Brady’s collarbone is fine. Just be like him, do what he does.

    “Romo said he’s otherwise healthy and that his sometimes balky back feels the best it’s felt in two or three years. ”

    I sure hope so he only played in two games this year.

    From being the no name QB at the combine throwing the WR’s that were invited, to an undrafted free agent Tony has had quite the career. I really hope he stays healthy next season and he can bring us that Super Bowl. After everything he has been through it would be only fitting. I love his attitude about the Boyz drafting a QB at #4. Class act all the way.

    Um… yes, it’s pretty conclusive that the bone density is an issue… it’s conclusive that it was broken twice last season. Waiting another month means… waiting for recuperation into spring, early summer. When is it ever a good idea NOT to maximize healing time?

    Tony needs to hang it up. These injuries when you are young have a way of coming back and haunting you in old age. He needs to think of his life after football,

  18. duncanthecat says: Feb 6, 2016 2:01 PM

    It’s painfully obvious Dallas is drafting a QB in either rounds 0ne or two.

  19. babygaga19 says: Feb 6, 2016 5:20 PM

    Romo is so overated and done. Did he ever win one playoff game? His legacy is funbeling the extra point against Seattle (?). That was funny!
