Jancy Briles, a Cowboys spokeswoman, filed suit April 29 against three companies involved in building or designing the team's practice facility that collapsed two years ago.

Briles, the daughter of Baylor football coach Art Briles, is a member of the team's public relations staff and suffered undisclosed but "serious, disabling and permanent" injuries. The Associated Press reported that the defendants include Summit Structures LLC of Allentown, Pa., and Cover-All Building Systems Inc. of Canada. This past March, Cover-All was dissolved after filing for bankruptcy.

The structure collapsed in a wind storm on May 2, 2009 during rookie minicamp. Special-teams coach Joe DeCamillis sustained broken vertebrae and scout Rich Behm was left paralyzed from the waist down. They received settlements of $35 million. Former UTEP TE Jamar Hunt also received a settlement for an undisclosed amount of money from those companies after suffering a herniated disk in his neck.
