Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy held another regularly scheduled press conference today. He gave updates on injuries and how the team plans to handle the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. (All answers are paraphrased and not actual quotes).

Due to a technical error, we missed much of the live press conference. In the interest of keeping you informed, here are some tweets mixed with a portion of the PC that we did get live.


There was some concern about the illness of Randy Gregory in the COVID era, but coach doesn’t think it has anything to do with that. He also updated the Zack Martin injury.

Coach also updated the Andy Dalton situation.

McCarthy also discussed the new intensive COVID protocols instituted by the NFL and the impact they have on coaching

He said they are working at 100 square feet per person, and they have multiple screens in each meeting room. For example, in the defensive meeting room they have one big screen and seven smaller ones. He noted they are fortunate to have space and resources to meet the requirements.

He also commented that everything is bigger in Texas, and they have plenty of room in the Ford Center to accommodate the requirements pretty easily. McCarthy also credited the medical staff, especially Jim Mauer, and said they have daily conversations to stay on top of things, and it’s also a credit to the discipline of the organization.
