Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Sharrif Floyd, who coaches the defensive line for Dallas, was taken back to the Cowboys locker room for further evaluation during the third quarter of the Cowboys home opener against the New York Jets.
It was a scary moment on the sidelines as CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson reported that Floyd fainted and had to be taken to the locker room, but under his own power.
Following the game, he was taken to the hospital.
“Sharrif was sent to the hospital. That’s really all the information that I have. We were being very cautious with what happened. I feel pretty good about the info we’ve been getting.”
The scary moment happened as Micah Parsons was returning what initially was ruled a 37-yard touchdown but later overturned to a fumble recovery at the Jets 37.
Many are praying for his health:
The 32-year-old Floyd spent his entire five-year NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings from 2013 to 2017. The Cowboys hired him to become their assistant defensive line coach in February.
Floyd made headlines when he sued famous sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews for $180 million in 2018 after he claimed Andrews used a pain blocker during a knee surgery that resulted in muscle and nerve damage two years earlier.
Shariff Floyd never played in the NFL again after filing his lawsuit.
