DALLAS -- The awful weather has led to more serious concerns than simple griping and discomfort. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy has confirmed a Dallas Morning News report that seven people have been injured by ice that is sliding off the roof at Cowboys Stadium and crashing to the ground.

Five of the seven injured have been taken to the hospital. The incident happened in the early afternoon on Friday.

"All stadium entrances have been closed except for the truck tunnel, which is away from the building by a very safe distance. All workers and visitors will now enter and exit through the tunnel until further notice," McCarthy said.
