The initial, informal assessment of Tony Romo’s expected absence is that he’ll miss eight weeks with a fractured left clavicle. A more official prognosis is coming on Monday.
That’s when, according to the team, he’ll have a CT scan aimed at gauging the damage and assisting the process of predicting his return.
Romo broke the same bone in the sixth game of the 2010 campaign. The early estimate on his absence was 6-8 weeks, but he missed the rest of the season.
The fact that Romo has been through this before means, as the team has pointed out, that he has a feel for where he is.
We’ll all know more on Monday — and then it will be time for reports and conflicting reports and rumors and speculation as to when he’ll show up.
