Tony Romo Collapses In Shower After Loss to Philadelphia
The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo collapsed in the shower after the team's 44-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
According to the report, Romo fell to the floor in the team's locker room shower.
Athletic trainer Jim Maurer and his staff rushed into the shower as the locker room came to a near standstill. A stretcher was wheeled in, but Romo was eventually helped to his feet and taken into the training room.
When asked later what happened, Romo said, "Um, you know, I was just a little banged up, I guess."
Rumors persist that Romo was suffering from a rib injury or back injury or both. Other suggest he may have had the flu. Whatever the case, it's likely that Romo had not been entirely healthy during the team's final few weeks. Romo had given up several interceptions and fumbles in the last few weeks, further adding to criticism that he tends to choke in big-game situations.
