Cowboys trainer injured in facility collapse released from hospital

IRVING, Texas -- A Dallas Cowboys assistant athletic trainer who sustained a broken leg in the collapse of the team's practice facility has been released from the hospital.

Greg Gaither was released from Baylor University Medical Center on Wednesday, the Cowboys said.

Gaither was one of 12 people injured Saturday when the team's tent-like structure collapsed during a severe storm. Gaither underwent surgery Saturday night to repair a fracture in the tibia and fibula of his right leg.

Two Cowboys staffers remain at Parkland Hospital. Rich Behm, a scouting assistant, was permanently paralyzed from the waist down after his spine was severed, and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis had surgery Monday to repair vertebrae in his back.
