SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Joe DeCamillis still wears a neck brace and has to sleep sitting up in a chair. Yet he refuses to let the broken neck he suffered when the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility collapsed keep him from doing his job.
DeCamillis was on the field again Wednesday for the start of Cowboys training camp. After the workout, the club's new special teams coach spoke with local reporters for the first time since the May 2 incident that left him lucky to be alive.
DeCamillis didn't want to talk about the events of that day. But he said he was thankful for the outpouring of support from friends, family, fans and colleagues throughout the NFL. He also called this recovery the biggest challenge of his life.
