Cowboys QB Tony Romo won't need surgery on his broken collarbone and could return to the field in 6-8 weeks, Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said today.

In a statement, Dalrymple said, "Romo underwent additional evaluation and testing today — including a CT scan — on the fractured left clavicle that occurred in last night's game against the New York Giants. The results of those tests indicate an estimated recovery time of between six to eight weeks. Surgery has not been recommended as a part of Romo's recovery process."

Romo was hit and driven to the turf on a clean play by Giants LB Michael Boley. He tried to return to the game later but was advised against it. An X-ray performed at the stadium revealed the break.

Backup Jon Kitna, who relieved Romo, will start for the Cowboys in the interim, starting with Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The Giants now have knocked five quarterbacks out of games this season. Panthers QB Matt Moore left in Week One with a concussion, Bears QB Jay Cutler and Todd Collins both were knocked out in Week Four, Lions QB Shaun Hill suffered a broken forearm in Week Six and Romo got hurt on Monday.
