Collarbone injury ends Romo’s year


Tony Romo knew he was risking another left collarbone injury by coming back eight weeks after initially breaking it.

The Dallas quarterbac­k won’t have to worry about another return. He’s out for the season this time.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that Romo would sit out the remaining five games with a small fracture in the same collarbone that already had sidelined him for seven games.

Romo will not need surgery after getting hurt in the third quarter of Thursday’s 3314 loss to the Panthers. He didn’t need surgery after breaking the collarbone in Week 2 at Philadelph­ia, either.

FALCONS: Running back Devonta Freeman, recovering from a concussion, will not play Sunday in Atlanta’s game against the Vikings.

Freeman missed practice all week, including Friday. Rookie Tevin Coleman is expected to start at running back.

Coach Dan Quinn said kicker Matt Bryant (right quadriceps injury) and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) also will miss the game.

COLTS: Coach Chuck Pagano made it official Friday: Andrew Luck and left tackle Anthony Castonzo will miss Sunday’s game.

Luck will miss his second straight game with a lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle. Castonzo will miss his first game since 2011 with a sprained right medial collateral ligament.

RAMS: Unless Case Keenum passes the NFL concussion protocol Saturday, St. Louis will turn to benched starter Nick Foles at quarterbac­k.

BILLS: Defensive tackle Kyle Williams will undergo surgery on his left knee and miss the rest of the season.
