Tony Romo underwent a CAT scan on his injured clavicle and collarbone on Tuesday, and NFL Network reporter Michael Lombardi tweeted that sources have told him Romo will miss only six weeks as opposed to the feared eight.

The Cowboys QB was hurt in the second quarter of Dallas' 41-35 loss to the Giants on Monday night and was replaced by Jon Kitna. If he misses the next six weeks, he would be projected to return on Dec. 12 when the Cowboys host the Eagles.

The way we see it

Lombardi's news, if true, is the best-case scenario for the Cowboys. With their season already in trouble at 1-5, losing their starting QB for the rest of the season would make 2010 even worse. Romo told reporters on Monday that he had trouble moving around and breathing following the injury.

Fantasy Spin

Replacing Kitna for Romo will alter the numbers for Cowboys skill players Miles Austin, Roy Williams, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Kitna has a solid arm and threw for two second-half TDs in relief, but lacks the mobility of Romo and could get abused behind a poor offensive line.
