Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has had his fair share of injuries, recently injuring his collarbone for a second time this season and putting him out for the year.

So when the quarterback position and 36-year-old Romo’s durability was brought up to team owner Jerry Jones on a local radio station, he lost his patience quickly.

“This is not a damn debate, guys,” Jones said, via ESPN. “This is not a debate we’re having here. Do you know that I don’t know if he’s got four or five years? You asked me my opinion and I can give you all the reasons why: the back, or I can give you clavicle, or I can give you any other type of injuries that are there.

“But you’re asking me what I think, and I think we’ve got outstanding quarterbacking ahead of us for the next four or five years. That’s not a downer. Will we be looking to develop and get talent behind Romo? Absolutely.”

Romo has broken his clavicle three times and he’s had two back surgeries since 2010.
