Report: Broken neck still an issue for DeCamillis

Nearly nine months after the Dallas Cowboys practice facility collapsed during a storm and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis suffered a broken neck, he’s still dealing with significant issues.

DeCamillis told Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News that he is looking forward to returning to Dallas after the Pro Bowl tonight to continue rehabilitation on his neck. The injury was such that he had to take pain killers to get through some games this season. As a coach.

"I won't have anymore surgery but I really haven't spent the time trying to rehab as much as I should have done," DeCamillis told Archer. "I did some lifting stuff, but as far as the pain goes in my neck, I've got to do something to try to correct it or see if it can be corrected."

When you need pain killers to get through games as a coach because the team’s practice facility fell apart in high winds and collapsed … what does that entitle one to? Job for life? Just asking.

If DeCamillis thinks he’s injured, though, he should check out what Bryant McKinnie has had to endure.
