Tony Romo may have been the most significant injury to the Cowboys, but he may have company on the sidelines next week. 

Quarterback Tony Romo suffered a broken collarbone during Monday night's game when he was sacked by Michael Boley. He won't need surgery but is expected to miss six to eight weeks. 

Cornerback Terence Newman suffered a rib injury in the first quarter when he was tackled by Ahmad Bradshaw after catching an interception. Newman was taken out for x-rays and eventually returned to the game, but said eventually the pain returned. Newman finished the game despite the pain and according to to coach Wade Phillips Newman should be able to play this week. 

Defensive end Jason Hatcher suffered a groin injury while chasing Eli Manning in the second quarter. A CT scan was taken and Phillips said the injury was significant enough that Hatcher will be out "for a while." The Dallas Cowboys website is reporting that Hatcher could miss a month and maybe more. 

Offensive lineman Montrae Holland also injured his groin, but it's a lot less significant than Hatcher's injury, although it was serious enough that Holland couldn't finish the game. Phillips isn't optimistic that Holland can play this week, which means if Kyle Kosier can't go, rookie Phil Costa will get his first career start. 

Speaking of Kosier he's still suffering from the achilles injury he suffered during the game against the Vikings. Kosier missed Monday's game and Phillips said he does not know if Kosier will be able to play against the jaguars on Sunday.  

Linebacker Bradie James suffered a knee injury during week five against the Titans has has been limited in practice since. He'll most likely play this week against the Jaguars but will be limited in practice.
