Tony Romo injured his collarbone twice last year, but he is not sure he needs to have surgery. Romo and the Surgical staff are still talking about the injury, and Romo may elect to not have the surgery after all. According to an interview with the Fort Worth Telegram, Romo says he wants to be on the field, and is just trying to make sure he makes the right decision to fix his collarbone.
“You weigh all of those things, but nothing is going to keep me off the field,” Romo said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It’s just assuring you don’t hurt something that you hurt twice last year. It’s not as if I’m going to get an ACL redone. This is a bone. I understand. Bones heal. Sometimes you can help them heal. That’s really what we’re talking about. Should we let it heal on its own or should we help it a little bit so it won’t happen again next year?”
Romo is 36 years old, and rumors swirling around Dallas headquarters is they are looking for a quarterback in round 1. If that is the case, Romo may want to make sure he is ready to go by week 1 so he doesn’t lose his job to a rookie.
“We haven’t made a decision yet,” Romo said. “We look at it, and we’re like: Which one ensures most likely that it never happens again? That’s really what you’re trying to do. We’re asking a lot of people to get enough data to figure out. The reality of it is, it’s a collarbone and if the collarbone doesn’t hurt, I should be good to go to play out the final four to five years. That’s all we’re trying to ensure.”
