Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was slated to undergo surgery on his left collarbone on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

Romo, who turns 36 next month, broke the collarbone twice last season when he missed 12 games.


Romo will undergo what is called a "Mumford procedure," a surgery that shaves part of the clavicle to open up space near the shoulder joint.

The recovery period is expected to be 6-to-8 weeks.

Romo has broken the collarbone three times - the other occurring in 2010.
