    Dallas Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm and his family.

    The family of Dallas Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm have set up a Web site to keep fans updated on his progress.

    In an e-mail sent to, the Behm family said the outpouring of love and support for the family has been "tremendous."

    One of the first journal entries reports that Behm's fever has finally broken and that he is already undergoing physical therapy in the ICU.  He will later be moved to a rehabilitation facility.

    Family members said Behm can't wait to move to the rehabilitation facility because he's been missing ESPN.

    Cowboys fans and well wishers can sign up to receive journal updates or notification e-mails on Behms progress through the Caring Bridge Web site.

    Behm was paralyzed from the waist down last Saturday when the Dallas Cowboys indoor training facility bubble collapsed during a heavy storm.

    The Dallas Cowboys have already set up a fund for the Behm family.

    “We’ve had an overwhelming number of phone calls and correspondence from friends and fans who want to know how they can help Rich and his family,” said Cowboys public relations director Rich Dalrymple.  “We are grateful to Bank of America for helping us get this moving so quickly.”
