Tony Romo has made the decision to undergo surgery on his broken collarbone.

According to PFT's Mike Florio, Romo will have the surgery in about two weeks, but which type of surgery he will have has yet to be determined. As explained by the Dallas Morning News, this first procedure consists of adding a plate to reinforce the collarbone area. The other is a Mumford procedure where part of his distal clavicle is shaved off or removed to reduce long-term stress.

The long-term goal is to make sure Romo doesn't break his collarbone for a fourth time.

The estimated recovery time for either surgery is anywhere from 6-10 weeks.

The 35-year old quarterback missed 10 games in 2015 after twice fracturing his collarbone.
