IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was among at least five people injured Saturday when the roof of the team's practice facility collapsed during a storm.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said four team support staff members were injured and all players and coaches were accounted for. He didn't know the extent of the injuries of the four, who he said were hospitalized.

DeCamillis was seen putting on a neck brace and being taken out of the team's main office building on a stretcher.

Witnesses said lights started flickering and shaking minutes before the collapse, prompting players, coaches, staff members and reporters to vacate the building. Several people were trying to exit the facility as the roof came down.

The storm was producing winds measured at 64 mph just before it struck the Cowboys facility.
