Joe DeCamillis has broken back after practice facility collapses

Mother Nature has cut the Dallas Cowboys' three-day rookie mini-camp short this weekend. A thunderstorm on Saturday afternoon collapsed the Dallas Cowboys practice facility.

None of the injuries (to the 12 injured) appear to be life-threatening according to Dr. Paul Pepe, chairman of the emergency department at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

None of the Cowboys' players suffered any serious injuries, but special teams coach
Joe DeCamillis, who is the son-in-law of Dan Reeves, suffered a broken vertebrae.
"It's just lucky and fortunate and a miracle really he's not paralyzed," Reeves told Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News.
DeCamillis will likely need back surgery.

Sunday's practice has been canceled.
