Statement from the Dallas Cowboys


The Dallas Cowboys cancelled Tuesday’s practice and Mike McCarthy’s scheduled press conference following a medical incident this morning with one of the team’s staff members.

The identity of the staff member has not yet been fully confirmed.

Frisco PD tells @SportsDayDFW emergency units were dispatched to The Star at 7:30 am for a medical emergency. No foul play suspected.

My understanding with the #Cowboys is that a member of their strength and conditioning staff had to receive serious medical attention. There is concern for this individual’s well-being, per sources.

The Cowboys were already on a short week with their annual Thanksgiving Day game coming. They will meet the Washington Football Team this Thursday afternoon after defeating the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Our best wishes go to the Cowboys staff member and his family as they deal with this situation.

What do you think?
