24 hours after suffering a fractured left clavicle in the Dallas Cowboys' week two win over the Philadelphia Eagles, quarterback Tony Romo has updated fans on his situation.
Amidst varying reports on whether he would need to undergo surgery on the injury, as he did in 2010, the veteran has alleviated some concerns with a message posted on his official Twitter account this afternoon.
Confirming that he wouldn't be going under the knife in the near future, Romo also had a motivational message to the Dallas faithful.

Despite his positive outlook on the situation, Romo's injury update didn't give fans any inclination as to how many weeks he will be out of the lineup.
In the race for information, various reports have offered up timeframes from anywhere between six weeks and the entire 2015 season - ProFootballTalk said today that an 8-10 week absence is likely.

Romo's message then must be seen as a positive. And it is fair to say Cowboys fans have reacted in that manner since their hero posted the message.
At the time of writing, Romo's message already had 5,000 retweets despite only being online for 10 minutes, with the majority of responses offering their support:
