Videos by OutKick

The Dallas Cowboys‘ COVID-19 outbreak has sidelined starting right tackle Terence Steele, three offensive coaches, two strength coaches, and it has now reached head coach Mike McCarthy.

McCarthy was placed in COVID-19 protocols Monday and will not coach Thursday against the New Orleans Saints, ESPN reports.

The team said McCarthy “will continue to direct, and be in involved in, all meetings and game preparations on a virtual basis for the remainder of the week, including Thursday’s meetings in New Orleans,” per ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.

The team will conduct all of its Monday meetings virtually and proceed with its regularly scheduled practice.

ESPN reports the team will also be without offensive line coach Joe Philbin, assistant offensive line coach Jeff Blasko, strength and conditioning coordinator Harold Nash and assistant strength and conditioning coach Kendall Smith.

Schefter reports there are “up to eight positives in Dallas. Details still rolling in.”

The Cowboys (7-4) will travel to face the New Orleans Saints (5-6) on Thursday’s Week 13 game with kickoff set for 7:20 p.m. CST.
