|Draft: 2012 Round 1 (22)
College: Oklahoma State
Ht: 6’3” Wt: 221 DOB: 1983-10-14 Age: 32
|The Colt McCoy era, if you can call it that, has seemingly come to a quick end in Cleveland with Weeden, the 22nd player taken in the draft, expected to take over in the starting lineup in 2012. Thatís nice but the bottom line is that Weeden wonít enjoy much more success than McCoy unless the team receives improved performances from its running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and offensive linemen. McCoy suffered at least partly because he lacked a true number one wide receiver, a role the Browns hope that second-year player Greg Little can grow into. Running back Trent Richardson, the highest rated player at his position in this yearís draft, should help the ground game. While Weeden is a solid dynasty league prospect given his age, maturity and strong arm, he is not worth owning in re-draft leagues.
| Romo on track to return in Week 11 -- Mon Nov 16 5:15 pm --|
Out since Week 2 with fractured collarbone
|Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's fractured collarbone appears to have healed based on recent test results, a league source told ESPN's Ed Werder. After missing two months of action, Romo should be cleared from injured reserve/designated to return Wednesday and play as expected Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, the source said.
"Tony's had a good couple of weeks of practice with us," coach Jason Garrett said. "We anticipate him being able to practice this week." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Cowboys won each of their first two games with Romo under center but have gone 0-7 during his absence with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel - the franchise's longest losing streak since 1989. His return is a major boost for all Dallas skill-position players, particularly Dez Bryant. Expect Darren McFadden to benefit as well since defenses will need to respect the passing game again. This week's opponent, the Miami Dolphins, present a plus-matchup for Romo.
|Romo placed on short-term IR, out until Wk 11 -- Tue Sep 22 12:30 pm --|
No surgery required for broken collarbone
|The next game Tony Romo is eligible to start is on Nov. 22 against the Miami Dolphins.
The Dallas Cowboys placed their starting quarterback on the injured reserve/designated to return list on Tuesday, which will keep him out for the next eight weeks as he recovers from a broken left collarbone. Romo will not have surgery to repair the collarbone.
FF Today's Take: The Cowboys offense has suffered to major blows in the first two weeks of the season. Both Dez Bryant (foot) and Tony Romo (shoulder) will miss a significant portion of the season. Brandon Weeden will be the Cowboys starting QB until Romo can return. Without Bryant, Weeden's fantasy value is in the QB2 tier.
| Romo has fractured clavicle; out about eight weeks -- Mon Sep 21 4:55 pm --|
Brandon Weeden to start in the interim
|Tony Romo wonít have surgery on his fractured left clavicle and will miss about eight weeks. Romo broke the same bone in the sixth game of 2010, and he appeared to know immediately heíd done it again in the third quarter in Philadelphia Sunday. The early estimate on his absence in 2010 was 6-8 weeks, but he missed the rest of the season.
The eight-week timetable gives Romo a chance to return for the teamís final six or seven games. The Cowboys play at the Dolphins on Nov. 22 and host the Panthers four days later on Thanksgiving, so those are the games circled for now as potential comeback dates. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: DeMarco Murray is gone, Dez Bryant is out indefinitely and now Romo is expected to miss half the season. For what it is worth, Jason Witten played through multiple ankle and knee sprains in Week 2 as well. Although the Cowboys have a great offensive line and improving defense, overcoming all of these personnel losses will probably be too much too ask. Brandon Weeden will be a low-end QB2 in Romo's absence; owners should expect even more focus on the running game going forward.
