DeCamillis released from hospital
DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis has been released from a Dallas hospital eight days after his neck was broken when the roof of the team's indoor practice facility collapsed during a storm.
The 43-year-old DeCamillis went home Sunday night from Parkland Hospital, where he had surgery to stabilize fractured neck vertebrae two days after the May 2 collapse.
Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm was paralyzed from the waist down when the roof was torn apart by strong winds from a severe thunderstorm during a rookie minicamp workout. Ten others were injured, including assistant trainer Greg Gaither, who had a broken leg.
DeCamillis thanked the hospital staff in a statement released by the team Monday.
