Tony Romo's three turnovers were momentarily meaningless last night when some of his Dallas teammates started yelling in the shower after the Cowboys quarterback collapsed because of the pain from a rib injury.

Athletic trainer Jim Maurer and his staff rushed into the shower as the visitors' locker room at Lincoln Financial Field came to a near standstill. Romo was 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."

After the 44-6 thumping by the Eagles, Romo fell to 5-8 as a starter in December.
