NFL News: Cowboys Win Over Eagles, Tony Romo Sustains Collarbone Injury
Dez Bryant was ruled out due to a broken-metatarsal last week. Now, Tony Romo picked one up on Sunday. Romo joined Dez Bryant on the injured list by breaking his collarbone against Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys won 20-10.
“I’ll be back,” Romo said. “It’s going to take a little bit of time. It’s a broken bone. It is what it is. Our team played great. I’m proud we got this win. It’s not an easy place to come in and win. We’ll hopefully get a few more and we’ll get ready to go.”
Dallas shut down DeMarco Murray to register their 10th win on a row. The cowboys overcame a franchise record of 18 penalties to finally pull off a win against the Eagles.
The architects of the Sunday’s win are Kyle Wilber and Brandon Weeden. Wilber returned a block-punt of 26 yards for touch-down and Weeden threw a 42-yard touchdown pass. Weeden played 15 games for Cleveland in 2012 as 29-year-old rookie.
“I know how to prepare, having Tony around will and you just don’t put added pressure on yourself,” Weeden said. “It’s going to be a challenge.”
And Murray is the reigning NFL rushing champion.
Dallas has already lost Bryant, who has been ruled out for at least 6 weeks after a foot surgery. Now they will miss Romo.
“Key thing is we get to have him at the end of the season,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said about Romo. “Physically, he has such focus and he understands his body. If it’s possible to get back, he’ll do it. No one has greater appreciation for what we can do than him.”
Romo, on the other hand, said that he already knew about his fate the moment he hit the turf.
“I felt it. It had a little bit of a pop to it,” Romo said. “Obviously, I’ve felt it before. Your body goes into a little bit of shock, and you just have to wait it out for a second to come back.”
