Sad news out of Dallas this evening in the aftermath of the Cowboys' indoor practice facility collapsing on Saturday.

The team has issued a press release saying that scouting assistant Rich Behm has been paralyzed from the waist down. He underwent surgery last night and remains in stable condition at Parkland Hospital.

Per The Dallas-Morning News, Behm moved from the Cowboys' video department to scouting a few years ago. He is 33-years-old.

Two other members of the Cowboys' staff are also still hospitalized.

From the team's press release:

Special teams coach Joe DeCamillis (43) sustained a fracture of one of his cervical vertebrae (C-7/T-1).  He remains in stable condition without paralysis at Parkland Hospital.   Surgery to stabilize the fracture is scheduled for Monday morning.

Assistant athletic trainer, Greg Gaither (35) sustained a fracture to the tibia and fibula in his right leg which was surgically repaired last night at Baylor University Medical Center.  He should be released later this week.

Below is a video of the windstorm causing the facility to collapse.
