DALLAS, Texas (KXAN) — The Cowboys are down one day of practice heading into their Thursday gameday against the Washington Football Team.
Reporter Todd Archer with ESPN tweeted the organization canceled their Tuesday practice due to “a non-COVID related medical emergency involving a staff member.”
The staff member was later identified as Markus Paul, the team’s strength and conditioning coordinator.
“Paul was immediately treated by Cowboys medical personnel and transported to a local hospital by ambulance,” Cowboys officials said. “Per the Paul family, Markus is in the process of undergoing further medical tests and additional information will be made available at the appropriate time.”
The shorter practice was meant to prepare for their Thanksgiving competition.
