Romo Headed To Injured Reserve

Tony Romo's season is indeed over.

The Cowboys are expected to place the Pro Bowl quarterback on injured reserve, ending a potential return from a fractured collarbone with two games left in the season.

Monday marked the end of a tentative eight-week timetable for Romo's return. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that Romo was still having "sensitivity" in his shoulder and wasn't ready to play this week.

Romo's move to injured reserve will create an open spot on the 53-man roster. The Cowboys could promote a practice squad player, possibly rookie Teddy Williams, the former track star who signed with the team as a cornerback in training camp but recently moved to receiver.
