Injured Cowboys assistant returns to work early
CARROLLTON, Texas -- The plan was for Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis to work from home while recovering from the broken neck he suffered when the club's indoor practice facility collapsed two weeks ago. But when the Cowboys' veterans and rookies showed up for organized training activities (OTAs) Tuesday morning, DeCamillis was on the field at Carrollton's Standridge High School Stadium barking out commands to players while wearing a neck brace that extends down his back.
DeCamillis was supposed to coach via Wade Phillips' son, Wes, but it appears that the plan has been scrapped. DeCamillis was brought into to fix the Cowboys' underperforming special teams units. On Tuesday, he stood behind the kickoff unit and shouted encouragement -- and expletives -- into his megaphone. Wade Phillips has vowed to put more emphasis on special teams this season, and that's why the first 30 minutes of practice were devoted to DeCamillis.
