Tony Romo

DALLAS, Texas- Despite a big win against the Philadelphia Eagles, Cowboy fans are a little frustrated.

Earlier this season, Dez Bryant was sidelined because of a broken foot.

While the team initially expected him to be out six weeks, a new report suggests he’ll be out of the game much longer.

Even though the Dallas Cowboys were down one of their top receivers, they still managed to beat the Eagles 20-10.

However, the win came with a price.

Quarterback Tony Romo suffered a fractured collarbone with nine minutes and 44 seconds left in the third quarter.

Doctors say Romo will be out indefinitely until the fracture is healed.

Now, the team will be led by backup quarterback and former OSU star Brandon Weeden.

During his time in the game, Weeden completed seven passes for 73 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for seven yards.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he is still confident that his team can win without Romo under center.

“Equipped to win as easy and as well as having Romo at quarterback? Of course not. No, no. We’re a different team, but we’re a team that can win football games in the NFL,” he said.

Dallas is now 2-0 heading into week three where they will face the Falcons.
