Cowboys DT Amobi Okoye has recovered from a "one-in-a-million" syndrome that put him in a lengthy coma and left him with a 145-day gap in his memory.
The Cowboys and Okoye were previously hush-hush on the exact "illness" that had stricken the 27-year-old. He contracted anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, an autoimmune syndrome that is potentially fatal. Okoye experienced a series of seizures and was out of football for 17 months. Okoye is reunited with DC Rod Marinelli and is competing for a rotational role in Dallas. Aug 15 - 8:57 AM
