Practice facility collapse a painful topic

Sunday will be the one-year anniversary of the collapse of the Cowboys’ practice facility and while legal action is still pending, special teams coach Joe DeCamillis said he prefers not to relive the ordeal.

 “I really just want to try to get on from that point, just try to see forward and do the best with what you’ve got,” DeCamillis said after a morning practice with rookies.

 DeCamillis suffered broken vertebrae in the accident and scouting assistant Rich Behm was paralyzed from the waist down.

 DeCamillis was asked if he is bothered by people asking about the incident.

 “It’s not a big problem people asking about it,” he said. “It’s a big problem dealing with some of stuff that’s happened from it.”

 DeCamillis had surgery after the incident and missed the scouting combine in February while consulting another doctor to see if he could get relief from the continuing pain in his neck.

 Behm and DeCamillis have filed suit against one of the companies owned by Jerry Jones, but Jones said that has not affected the working relationship with the two men.

 "To their credit, there's sensitivity but no strain," Jones said. "There is no awkwardness there in terms of our relationships.”
