Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo broke his left clavicle Sunday — an injury that could create an opportunity for former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore.
Moore signed with the Cowboys the first week of the season and joined the practice squad after three years as the No. 3 quarterback for the Detroit Lions.
With Romo out beginning next week against the Falcons, the Cowboys will start backup Brandon Weeden, owner Jerry Jones told reporters. They also likely will promote Moore to the active roster. And Moore likely would be active for games as the backup.
Moore hasn’t been active for an NFL game in his career because the Lions routinely listed him as inactive on game days.

The Cowboys also could try to find a veteran quarterback to add instead of Moore.
