The athlete's girlfriend "rushed to his side as soon as she found out that Tony got hurt," a source told PEOPLE after reports surfaced that Romo had collapsed in the shower of the team's locker room after the game Sunday.
“She got on a red eye flight right when she found out, and arrived at 5 a.m. [that] morning," the source added.
As for Romo, 28, the torn cartilage popped out of place twice during the game and again afterward, which is what caused him to collapse, according to the Dallas Morning News.
