IRVING, Texas (AP) - The company that built the Dallas Cowboys' training facility says the roof that collapsed over the weekend had been replaced just last year.

Summit Structures LLC said Monday that proper engineering practices were used when the $4 million facility was built in 2003 and when the roof was replaced. Summit president Nathan Stobbe said in a statement that he's in Irving working with team and local officials to "fully assess this severe weather event."

The tentlike practice facility collapsed Saturday, injuring 12, including a scouting assistant who was permanently paralyzed.

The Allentown, Pa., company's statement said few answers about precisely what happened Saturday are available so far.
