Staffer paralyzed when Cowboys' facility collapsed attends minicamp

CARROLLTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys scouting assistant paralyzed when the team's practice facility collapsed last month attended the start of minicamp.

Rich Behm, paralyzed from the waist down in the May 2 accident, sat in the pressbox Monday to watch the first practice session of the Cowboys' only mandatory minicamp. He was in a booth with other team scouting officials.

The minicamp, like other offseason activities since the accident, is being held at a high school stadium a few miles from the team's Valley Ranch complex. The Cowboys expect to return to Valley Ranch after training camp.

Coach Wade Phillips says he believes that Behm is going to be able to start coming to work some, which the coach calls "good news for all of us."
