Last year, special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis was forced to miss the NFL Scouting Combine as he rehabbed the injuries sustained in the May 2009 practice bubble collapse at Valley Ranch, in which he suffered a fractured cervical vertebrae.
DeCamillis spent a good deal of that offseason in a neck brace, but didn’t miss any part of training camp or the regular season due to the injury. Still, he had to forgo the Combine in order to rehab in Atlanta the injuries suffered the year before.
This year, DeCamillis is in Indianapolis as planned, and though not pain free and doubtful if he ever will be, the Cowboys’ special teams coach is glad to be on the upswing with respect to the lingering pain of the injury.
“I think that stuff is going to be there the whole time,” DeCamillis said, per ESPN Dallas. “It’s something I’ve got to get used to. It’s better than it was this time last year. That’s all I’m asking for. Just keep going in the right direction hopefully.”
