Tony Romo has today said he is open to having surgery to address his troublesome left collarbone once and for all.

Option

As reported by the Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback said the possibility of inserting a metal plate to help strengthen the joint was one of the possibilities as he looks to bounce back from an injury-hit year.

Romo broke the collarbone not once, but twice during the 2015 NFL season, and has also broken it once before during his time in the league.

"If we have to put a plate in there, something small, we'll do that," the veteran quarterback explained.

"That should ensure that that (break) doesn't happen, or the percentage of that goes way, way down."

The Cowboys capitulated in the absence of Romo this season, winning just one game so far in which the 35-year-old hasn't featured. As you might expect, therefore, those involved are looking into every possible option as they look to get their star man back at 100-percent for next year.

Last resort?

Surgery, though, whilst a legitimate possibility appears to be a final option.

Romo himself noted that he will undergo a CT scan in the near future to assess where his recovery is at, whilst Cowboys owner Jerry Jones actually appeared quite bullish that no surgery would be needed.

Speaking to 105.3 The Fan, Jones said a plate would only be inserted if something unforeseen happens down the line.

Having watched their team stutter to a 4-11 record, Dallas fans will simply be hoping Romo is back fit and on the field come 2016, regardless of what is needed to get him there.
