Jessica Simpson, Tony Romo's girlfriend,"rushed to his side as soon as she found out that Tony got hurt," a source told People magazine (www.people.com) after reports surfaced that Romo had collapsed in the shower of the team's locker room after the game Sunday. Romo was feeling the effects of torn rib cartilage.
“She got on a red eye flight right when she found out, and arrived at 5 a.m. [that] morning," the source added.
And Cowboys reserve linebacker and Romo good buddy Bobby Carpenter, interviewed on ESPN's Outside the Lines today, said that Romo is a "Zen master, like Phil Jackson," in the way he handles the situation amid reports of discord between the quarterback and his receivers.
Carpenter also disputed the notion that the team chemistry is bad, saying he believes the Cowboys have one of the "tightest" locker rooms in the NFL compared with what he has heard of other clubs.
