Tony Romo on lookout for groomsman

By Todd Archer



IRVING, Texas -- Last week Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall promised to come after Tony Romo’s injured ribs. Now this week Romo has to worry about Bobby Carpenter targeting the injury.

Romo and Carpenter are best of friends from their four years together with the Cowboys.

“I suspect that he’ll put his friendship aside through the game and come after me when he gets the opportunity,” Romo smiled.

In May Carpenter was one of Romo’s groomsmen, along with tight end Jason Witten. Not getting hit should have been a prerequisite for being in the wedding party, no?

“That wasn’t part of the deal,” said Romo, who was also in Carpenter’s wedding. “I probably should’ve made the stipulation but I forgot at the time.”
