Assistant Head Coach Carted Off The Field

!Assistant head coach/WR coach Jimmy Robinson was involved in a scary scene at practice where he was knocked to the ground during a special teams drill and was motionless for a few moments. His arms and legs have moved and he was mobilized and carted off the field by EMT and team medical staff.

The incident occurred when wide receiver Teddy Williams, the gunner was pushed to the sideline and into Robinson, who immediately hit the ground and was believed to be unconscious. He didn't move his arms or legs for about a minute before finally moving his arms. He tried to sit up at one point but was advised to lay back down where he was then mobilized on a stretcher.

As practice stopped, most of the team and coaches had surrounded the scene with obvious concern. Jason Garrett, who played with the Giants while Robinson was an assistant coach, remained at Robinson's side the entire time, even once practice resumed again.

Robinson was able to talk to Garrett and owner Jerry Jones. Garrett actually had a smile on his face as Robinson was eventually carted off through the end zone and likely headed to a nearby hospital.

This is Robinson's first season with the Cowboys after spending five years in Green Bay, fresh off helping the Packers win the Super Bowl.

Stay tuned for more details.
