Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm, who was partially paralyzed in the the collapse of the team’s practice facility in Irving, Texas, spoke with WFAA-TV in Dallas about his ordeal. Behm was caught underneath the tent-like structure when it collapsed during a storm in May.
- “[I'm] still going to walk again,” he said. “It’s no big deal. That’s a goal, and so I’m sticking to that.
- “I’m still trying to learn how to deal with what’s happened to me right now in terms of getting on with my normal life,” he said. ” I can’t even drive a car.”
Behm returned to work for the Cowboys weeks after his injury.
