Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was released from Parkland Hospital on Sunday. DeCamillis was one of the unfortunate individuals injured in the micro-burst that buckled the Cowboys practice facility.
He walked away from the incident but was taken to the hospital due to complaints of neck pain. The medical staff at Parkland discovered he had fractured one of his cervical vertebrae in the devastation, and that it would require surgery to repair. The surgery was successful and DeCamillis was able to return home with his family.
After being released from the Hospital DeCamillis had this to say, “I want to take this opportunity to express my family’s overwhelming gratitude to every person that we have come in contact with at, Parkland Hospital.
The care, professionalism, and support that I received were way beyond outstanding. My family and I look at the outcome of my surgery as both a miracle and a blessing, and we will forever be grateful to every single Parkland employee and emergency medical representative who played a part.”
There has been no word yet as to when DeCamillis will be able to return to his duties as Special Teams Coordinator. He held the same position for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
DeCamillis was brought to the Cowboys to lift up the production of a special teams squad the struggled greatly under Bruce Read. The expectations for DeCamillis’ squad are very high for this year, and some believe he could have a huge impact on the outcome of this season.
