Romo: Parents fine after accident

By Calvin Watkins

IRVING -- After his father ate lunch in the Cowboys locker room Friday, quarterback Tony Romo said his parents are fine after they were involved in an automobile accident on Nov. 15.

As Ramiro and Joan Romo drove home from the Packers game in Green Bay to Burlington, Wis., they were rear ended by another car, Tony Romo said. Joan Romo suffered a fractured back.

"Just taking some meds," Tony Romo said after practice Friday. "The Romos are tough."

CBS Sports reported the accident during the telecast of the Raiders game on Thanksgiving Day.

"Tony's parents weren't even a mile away from Lambeau Field when their car was rear ended by a driver going some estimates up to 50 miles an hour," CBS Sports anchor Jim Nantz said during the telecast, according to The Associated Press.

Nantz said during the telecast that Romo didn't know about the accident until the Cowboys got home later in the evening.
