Dallas coach Mike McCarthy has not yet returned to the team after missing last week’s game with COVID-19, but the team expects him back this week.

Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said Thursday is McCarthy’s most likely return date.

“We just think it’s normally just like it is with players, we’re looking at the 10 days,” Jones said. “Probably looking at getting him back on a Thursday. Don’t think it’ll usually be before, it rarely is.”

Jones said McCarthy has been handling many of his coaching duties without being at the facility.

“Certainly, he’s doing all his work and getting the team prepared and we know he’d love to be there, hands on,” Jones said. “But at the same time, he does a great job Zooming in and getting his staff prepared.”

From all indications, McCarthy will be on the sideline on Sunday at Washington.

  1. Shouldn’t have taken that long if he was vaccinated, and the league said everyone but the players were 100% vaccinated. #suspicious.

  2. I think this is the year for the Cowboys, if any year will be. I don’t think they’re a great team or will be any time soon, but there are no really consistent, predictable teams in the league right now. It’s an “any given Sunday” year for everyone.

    If they can get and stay healthy and be in the right place in the right time, they stand a chance.

  3. That’s unfortunate.
    The Cowboys have a better shot of winning when he misses games.
