A big injury for the Cowboys.

The Philadephia Eagles' game against the Cowboys resulted in a couple key injuries for the home team, but now it's Dallas who is feeling the pain. Quarterback Tony Romo suffered a fractured left clavicle in the third quarter following a sack by Jordan Hicks.

Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Romo's injury could keep him out for eight weeks - which would mean he'd miss the Eagles-Cowboys rematch in Week 9.

Needless to say, Romo missing significant time is a huge blow to Dallas' offense. The Cowboys' backup quarterback is former Browns first round pick Brandon Weeden, who is a decent backup but not much more.

The Cowboys are also missing superstar wide receiver Dez Bryant, who suffered a foot injury in Week 1. And on defense, the Cowboys are already without cornerback Orlando Scandrick and defensive linemen Greg Hardy and Randy Gregory.
