ARLINGTON, Texas -- We're going to have a complete story on Tony Romo's night but we wanted to tell you what he said following the Cowboys' loss to the New York Giants on Monday night.

Romo suffered a fractured left clavicle in the second quarter that could cost him six-to-eight weeks. Cowboys' officials will determine the extent of the injuries at some point on Tuesday.

"It doesn't feel good, but it's just normal," Romo said. "I didn't know that it was broken. I was kind of in shock. When it happens your body kind of goes in shock and I had a hard time breathing. I tried catching my breath, and when I did, it was hard to move this [left] shoulder. It felt like a good sprain and I was just trying to get back in. I was just really light headed."

Romo tried to return to the game in the second quarter, but associate athletic trainer Britt Brown pulled him back to the sideline area.

"I was upset, disappointed, I was frustrated," Romo said. "You work very hard to play in these games, to be in these positions. We were in a good position. I don't remember the exact score, I think it was around 10 or something we had right at that point we were leading the game and that was a big possession."

When Romo went down the Cowboys led 10-7. After that the game went south from there.
