Tony Romo out for the year after being placed on injured reserve

DALLAS (Reuters) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been placed on injured reserve, ending any potential return for the final two games of the season, the NFL team said Tuesday.

The three-time All-Pro signal-caller has not played since breaking his collarbone on October 25.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Sunday Romo was still having sensitivity issues in his left shoulder and was not ready to play this week, Dallas's official website (www.dallascowboys.com) reported.

Jon Kitna replaced Romo at quarterback for the Cowboys (5-9), who have been eliminated from the postseason.

Romo finished the season with 1,605 yards passing and 11 touchdowns.
