Romo Won't Need Surgery, Out For 6-8 Weeks

A CT scan on Tuesday morning revealed Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not need surgery for his broken left clavicle, coach Wade Phillips announced. Phillips said Romo would be sidelined six to eight weeks, with the longer time period more likely, sources said. It is possible that Romo will not play again this season since that timetable would not permit him to return to the lineup until mid-December.

Bengals Place Pacman On IR

Adam "Pacman" Jones' comeback season with the Cincinnati Bengals has been cut short by a neck injury. The Bengals said Tuesday that they put Jones on the injured reserve list because of a herniated disk in his neck suffered in Sunday's 39-32 loss at Atlanta.

Arenas Misses Practice For Third Straight Day

Gilbert Arenas' sore right ankle kept him out of practice for the third straight day Tuesday as the Washington Wizards prepared for their season opener. Coach Flip Saunders said he'll "have to see what happens in the next 48 hours" to determine if Arenas plays Thursday night against the Orlando Magic. No. 1 overall pick John Wall and veteran Kirk Hinrich would be the starting guards if Arenas doesn't suit up -- and possibly even if he does.
