Rick Herrin, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (rib) who suffered a rib injury late in Week 17, collapsed in the shower and had to be helped to his feet by teammates. Romo had X-rays after receiving attention from the team's athletic trainers. When he fell, teammates rushed to his aid and one player called for paramedics. Emergency help rushed into the locker room with a stretcher, which wasn't needed. Romo was helped to his feet, and appeared to have trouble breathing from the injury. Romo spoke at his postgame news conference, but had trouble moving. He also had to be helped off a short stage where he addressed the media.
Apparently it's tough to keep your balance in the shower when you've had your head up your butt all day...
