The Dallas Cowboys will move practice today from their facility at Valley Ranch to High Park High School.
Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reported the change is being made because of high winds in the area. The Cowboys suffered a tragedy three years ago when a storm collapsed their training facility and led to serious injuries as scout Rich Behm was paralyzed below the waist. Special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis also suffered a neck injury.
The Cowboys cannot move to Cowboys Stadium because the Texas high school state playoff games are being played there.
Highland Park High School has a $4.5 million indoor facility that has been deemed good enough for an NFL team to use. In fact, the Green Bay Packers used it prior to Super Bowl XLV.
