The Dallas Cowboys had a few injury scares on Sunday, but the most important health concern centered on assistant coach Sharrif Floyd. The former NFL player fainted on the sideline during the team's Week 2 game and was escorted back to the locker room, immediately prompting some serious worries.
Initial word on Floyd has been positive, though, and Monday provided another encouraging update.
Sharrif Floyd Update
The former Minnesota Vikings starter has been released from the hospital after overnight observation, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. Moore added that Floyd's expected to return to coaching on the sidelines on Tuesday.
This is absolutely fantastic news. Floyd was able to walk off the field under his own power after the incident, but head coach Mike McCarthy said the team wanted to be as cautious as possible with the assistant and sent him to the hospital.
Floyd was added to the Cowboys' coaching staff this offseason as an assistant defensive lineman coach. His NFL experience, which includes being a first-round pick by Minnesota in 2013 and appearing in 44 games for the Vikings, made him an ideal fit to help make this DL group even better in 2023.
It sounds like Floyd will make a quick recovery, which has everyone in Cowboys Nation breathing a huge sigh of relief. The team will surely be happy to welcome him back on Tuesday.
