The head coach of the Cowboys will play COVID-19 and will miss the Thursday game

New coach Mike McCarthy has signed COVID-19 with the National Football League (NFL) team on Monday, but the Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has joined COVID-19 protocol and will miss the game.

McCarthy will continue to assist his team in preparation for Thursday's game at the New Orleans Saints, on a virtual basis.

The Cowboys have been severely awried by the virus, leaving their offensive line coach, assistant line coach, and offensive assistant for Thursday's game.

Amari Cooper, the unvaccinated Top Cowboys receiver, missed the last two games after testing positive for COVID-19, while right tackle Terence Steele is set to miss Thursday's game after testing positive.

The Cowboys, whom Forbes considers the most valuable sports team with a value of $5.7 billion, have missed the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, but have a comfortable lead atop the NFC East division.
