Cardinals assistant faints, taken to hospital

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Arizona assistant coach Donnie Henderson fainted as he drove into the stadium area and had a minor accident before the Cardinals faced the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night.

Henderson, who coaches defensive backs, was taken to a nearby hospital for further examination, but he was described as coherent after the incident. The car smashed into a barricade but Henderson was not hurt, the team said.

Henderson, 53, is in his 10th year as an NFL assistant, but first with Arizona. Last season he was out of the NFL after serving as defensive backs coach for Jacksonville in 2008.

The Cardinals beat the Cowboys, 27-26.
