FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys canceled practice Tuesday over what the club initially said was a noncoronavirus medical emergency involving a staff member.

This afternoon, the team confirmed strength and conditioning coach Markus Paul experienced a medical emergency before 7:30 a.m. and was transported via ambulance to a local hospital.

Coach Mike McCarthy’s daily meeting with reporters was canceled, as were interviews with players.

Dallas is scheduled to play Washington on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys are coming off a win at Minnesota that gave them a chance to play for first place in the NFC East despite a 3-7 record. Washington also is 3-7.
