Cowboys Will Not Place Tony Romo On IR

The Cowboys do not plan on placing Tony Romo on IR, Jason La Canfora of tweets. The Cowboys want to keep Romo on the roster in the event of a long playoff run. Of course, with a 3-8 record good for last in the NFC East, a playoff appearance doesn’t seem terribly likely.

Romo re-injured his collarbone in Thursday’s loss to the Panthers and that hairline fracture in his clavicle will keep him off the field for some time. Initially, the Cowboys had been holding out hope that Romo hadn’t broken the clavicle for the second time this year. However, a CT scan last week confirmed the club’s fears.

Of course, the Cowboys are likely headed for a top-10 draft pick rather than vying for a postseason spot. After the way this season has played out for Romo, one has to wonder if the Cowboys might look to tap their quarterback of the future in April.

    So if Cassel steps up and somehow someway gets them into the playoffs, they want the option of switching to Romo?

    I guess at this point it’s worth keeping him on the roster to see what transpires in the putrid NFC East, as it’s costing the team a depth piece somewhere of less importance. But this is a highly unrealistic scenario.

    So they can bring him back again to do more damage?
