FRISCO, Texas — Dallas Cowboys strength and conditioning coordinator Markus Paul was rushed to a local hospital early Tuesday morning after experiencing a medical emergency, the team announced.
Paul, 54, is undergoing further medical tests, and additional information will be made available at the appropriate time, the family told the organization.
“The organization extends its prayers and support to the Paul family, and asks for friends and followers of Markus, his family and the team to keep them in their thoughts and prayers,” the Cowboys said in a statement.
Shortly before 7:30 a.m. CT, Paul was treated by Cowboys medical personnel and transported to a local hospital by ambulance.
Coach Mike McCarthy told the players and staff about Paul’s situation at an already-planned team meeting at 8:05 a.m. CT and that practice would be canceled. The Cowboys sent out a news release shortly before 10 a.m. CT saying there was “a non-COVID related medical emergency involving a staff member.”
