Roof collapses on Dallas Cowboys' practice facility

Posted:

IRVING, TEXAS (AP) - Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was among several people injured Saturday when the roof of the team's practice facility collapsed during a storm. Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple says four team staff members were injured and that all players and coaches were accounted for. He didn't know the extent of the injuries of the four who were hospitalized.

It wasn't immediately clear whether DeCamillis was among the four Dalrymple said were injured. He was seen putting on a neck brace and being taken out of the team's administrative headquarters on a stretcher.

The roof came down during a severe thunderstorm while the team was going through the second day of a three-day rookie minicamp. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in an TV interview from the Kentucky Derby, said 27 rookies were going through the workout. Dalrymple said rescue personnel were still going through the debris to make sure everyone was accounted for.

The roof is a large, air-supported canopy with aluminum frames covering a regulation 100-yard football field.
