It’s been a tough 10 months for Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis.
In May DeCamillis underwent surgery to stabilize multiple broken bones in his spine after being hurt when the team’s indoor practice facility collapsed in a storm. In December he had to miss a game after being rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.
Everything is apparently OK on the appendicitis front, but DeCamillis is still having problems related to the spine injury. As a result, he’s going to miss the NFL scouting combine so he can go to Atlanta for a consultation with spinal specialists.
“It might be my impatience, but I want to do all I can to get some of this pain to go away,” DeCamillis told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “With another set of eyes, maybe they can do something. Hopefully, they can give me some hope that will happen.”
