A person with knowledge of the deal says the Cowboys have acquired quarterback Matt Cassel from Buffalo with Tony Romo sidelined at least seven games because of a broken left collarbone.
Other terms of the trade Tuesday weren't immediately available. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been announced.
Cassell has 71 starts in 90 games over 11 seasons, not counting the opener this year when he took the first snap for the Bills with Tyrod Taylor lined up at receiver.
Brandon Weeden is expected to start Sunday at home against Arizona, but Cassel is a veteran with far more experience than the fourth-year pro. Before the trade, owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show that Weeden was his starter. The Cowboys appear to be all-in despite being banged up on the offensive side of the ball. The NFC East is looking weak and Dallas' two wins at this point in the season look pretty big.

Week 2 vs Philadelphia
Everyone was talking about the last-second drive Tony Romo put together to defeat the Eagles last Sunday night, but the story we care about is the great fantasy game Romo was able to give his owners. He completed 80% of his passes, throwing for 356 yards and three touchdowns. The lone black mark was the two interceptions, but we can live with it.
Romo got some bad news losing Dez Bryant for a couple of months, but we only expect that to be a mild setback. This week, the Cowboys face the Eagles defense, which is still questionable at this point. Romo played better on the road last season, so we feel he has the advantage in this matchup. Start Romo in all leagues as a top-5 fantasy QB in Week 2.
