OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Damien Wilson can be added to the list of freak accidents in the offseason for the Dallas Cowboys after the second-year linebacker injured an eye in a paintball accident.

Executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said Friday the incident happened about a week before the Cowboys reported for training camp in California.

Wilson is joined on the non-football injury list by running back Darren McFadden, who broke his right elbow during Memorial Day weekend trying to save his cellphone when he dropped it.

Jones declined to comment on details of Wilson's injury, but did say there wasn't much concern over serious complications for the 23-year-old.

The first practice for the Cowboys is Saturday.
