Romo out with fractured left clavicle

On the first play of the first second quarter drive for the Cowboys, Tony Romo hit Miles Austin for a nice 14-yard pass, but when the cameras panned back to the quarterback, he was lying on the field -- having been destroyed by Michael Boley -- not moving.

Foley, sprinting towards Romo at full speed, thanks to a blown block by FB Chris Gronkowski, delivered a vicious (but legal!) blow which eventually fractured the left clavicle on Romo's left throwing shoulder. Typically speaking, that's an injury that can take at least 2-3 months to heal, meaning Romo's season is all but over, barring a miraculous run by the Cowboys to get back in playoff contention with Jon Kitna under center.

Seven or so medical personnel swarmed out to check on the Dallas QB and he was removed from the game and replaced by Jon Kitna, who hadn't played a regular season snap in about two years. Romo was 5 of 7 for 39 yards and a touchdown pass at the time of the injury.

Romo tried to enter the game just a few snaps after the injury, but Cowboys medical officials weren't having it, and they took him to the locker room for X-rays, where they determined the extent of the injury. It's a major blow to an already awkward Cowboys season -- Romo's ruled out for the rest of the game against the Giants, and there's no question that his season is in jeopardy, although we won't know for sure until probably Tuesday.

Kitna was able to lead them to a field goal on the possession, and after a stop by the Dallas D, Dez Bryant got straight loose on a punt return to the house, but the Giants quickly responded and score two touchdowns to take the lead late in the second half.

That surge, coupled with the news of Romo's injury, sucked the life out of Cowboys Stadium. And for good reason.

How can this be said to be a legal hit.  Isn't there are rule prohibitting a defensive player from driving a quarterback into the ground with the full weight of his body?

What???  Should he only use half his weight.  Should we have a weight limit?

As a guy from Wisconsin, I feel bad a fellow Wisconsinite got hurt.  As a Packers fan I say "Sucks to be the Cowboys"
