The Dallas Cowboys have a mini-controversy brewing over how best to keep Tony Romo’s tender collarbone in tact from here on out.
Romo has broken his left collarbone three times since 2010 — twice this season. During an appearance on KTCK-AM 1310 The Ticket on Monday, Romo mentioned the possibility of a surgically inserted plate.
“We have a few ideas of what we can do with the collarbone,” Romo said, via the Dallas Morning News. “There are a few plans. We’re going to pick out the CT scan and some of the other stuff and see how much calcification has taken and whether it’s gotten to a point where we feel like it’s really strong and it will be able to handle some of the normal hits you take.
“But we’re going to have a good plan. If we have to put a plate in there, something small, we’ll do that. That should ensure that that doesn’t happen, or the percentage of that goes way, way down.”
Jerry Jones has a different on the whole plate idea — telling 105.3 The Fan that it’s not going to happen.
“Unless something occurs that hasn’t occurred, he will not have a plate,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He will heal naturally. It’s the way to go.”
We have a difference of opinion on his collarbone — but Tony Romo is the least of the cowboys problems.
