Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Sharrif Floyd has been released from the hospital after fainting on the sideline during Sunday's game.

Floyd, 32, is in his first season as an assistant defensive line coach and defensive quality control coach.

Floyd collapsed on the sideline during the third quarter of the Cowboys' 30-10 win against the New York Jets in Arlington, Texas. He was able to leave the field under his own power and went to the training room for further evaluation.

The plan is for Floyd to work from home Monday and return to team facilities on Tuesday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

"Right now everything is checking out well," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Monday.

Floyd was a first-round draft pick (23rd overall) by Minnesota in 2013. The defensive tackle recorded 95 tackles and 9.5 sacks in 44 games (24 starts) with the Vikings from 2013-16.
