Cowboys' special teams coach misses game with appendicitis

Although there were no surprises on the Dallas Cowboys’ list of inactive players, there was a surprise scratch on the coaching staff.

Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was taken to the hospital today with appendicitis and is not at the game against the Redskins. DeCamillis had an emergency appendectomy at a Virginia hospital.

With DeCamillis out, the responsibilities of coordinating the special teams will fall to quality control coach and offensive assistant Wes Phillips, the son of head coach Wade Phillips.

    Wes Phillips also took over the special teams when Joe D was hurt during the practice facility incident.

    This just shows why more people need to be organ donors. There’s millions of people just like DeCamillis on the appendix transplant waiting list.
