UPDATE: The Cowboys released a statement confirming that Paul had a medical emergency Tuesday, and was “undergoing further medical tests.” His daughter also posted on social media that he’s on life support.

Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Markus Paul is alive after an initial report that he had died.

Sports Illustrated reporter Mike McAllister had reported that the strength and conditioning coach for the Cowboys passed away Tuesday at the age of 54. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

McAllister’s report came after the Cowboys abruptly canceled their Tuesday practice for a medical emergency, but the team has since clarified the situation.

This is just a heartbreaking report and developing situation down in Dallas, and there’s no other way to put it.

We’re wishing nothing but the best for Paul and his whole family.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Cowboys, Paul’s family and friends and everyone else impacted by this developing situation.

Keep checking back for more updates as we have them.
