Dallascowboys.com: Tony Romo suffered rib cartilage damage in the
second half of Sunday's blowout at the hands of the Eagles, just
adding to what was already a bad day for the quarterback. This was
the third straight December Romo has lost ugly to Philadelphia.
Romo was sacked three times and hit hard several more, throwing an
interception and losing two fumbles in the process. He has played
through pain for much of the season, first missing three games
with a fractured pinkie finger suffered in October, then injuring
his back against NY 2 weeks ago. The pain Sunday caused Romo to
topple over in the shower after the game. He winced while sipping
cola during his postgame press conference, and needed to be helped
off a short stage following the interview session. Team officials
had to carry his bags for him as the team boarded the buses to
leave the stadium. "I'm not sure exactly what you call it - like a
separated cartilage," coach Wade Phillips said Monday. "It pops in
and out. It did twice during the game, I guess, and then in the
shower, which causes pain."
