DALLAS — With its postseason hopes gone, the Dallas Cowboys finally went ahead and placed quarterback Tony Romo on injured reserve with a broken collarbone, sidelining him for the season.

Romo hasn’t played since the third quarter of a 33-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thanksgiving, when he threw three first-half interceptions.

The Dallas Cowboys are adamant that they have no intention of shutting down Dez Bryant for the remainder of the season.

The Cowboys, who will miss the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons, also said receiver Dez Bryant will remain on the active list, although he’s listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game at Buffalo, meaning there’s only a 25 percent chance he’ll play.

PATRIOTS: New England signed defensive back Troy Hill off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals and waived tight end Asante Cleveland, according to several media reports.

The team also declared linebacker Jonathan Freeny out for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets because of a right hand injury. Receiver Julian Edelman (foot) is listed as doubtful on the injury report.

JETS: Cornerback Dee Milliner is doubtful for the game Sunday against New England because of a strained hamstring.

GIANTS: Defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) and linebacker James Morris (quad) were placed on injured reserve.

The Giants signed two players from their practice squad – defensive end Brad Bars and tight end Matt LaCosse.

BEARS: Receiver Alshon Jeffery was listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay because of a hamstring injury.

TITANS: Wide receiver Kendall Wright and safety Da’Norris Searcy are probable to play Sunday against Houston.
