DeCamillis Proving He's One Tough Guy

Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was at the team's first training camp practice Wednesday. No big surprise, except that DeCamillis is still recovering from a broken neck.

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.

After the teams first workout, the club's new special teams coach spoke talked publicly for the first time since the May 2 incident that left him injured, but 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.
