IRVING, Texas -- A trust fund has been established for the family of Dallas Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm, who was paralyzed from the waist down when the team's indoor practice facility collapsed during a thunderstorm.

The Cowboys said in a news release that Bank of America, in conjunction with the Cowboys, would accept donations on behalf of the 33-year-old Behm and his family. Checks can be made payable to the Rich Behm Family Trust Fund at any Bank of America location.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said the team had received a number of calls from people wanting to know how they could help the Behm family.

Special teams coach Joe DeCamillis and assistant athletic trainer Greg Gaither were also injured in Saturday's collapse. Both were expected to be released from the hospital this week after undergoing surgery.
