The Dallas Cowboys are on a short week this week as they will host the Washington Football Team on Thanksgiving. As it is currently Tuesday, they were slated to practice today, but those plans changed at about 10 A.M. ET.
It was reported that the Cowboys cancelled their Tuesday practice, Mike McCarthy’s press conference, and all player media availability for the day due to a non-covid medical emergency regarding a staff member. No other information is available at this time.

Mike McCarthy’s morning news conference has been cancelled
We will keep you updated here at BTB as more information becomes available.
Update: 10:43am ET
It was reported by the Dallas Morning News that the situation did not involve Dallas Cowboys owner, president, and general manager Jerry Jones.
We can tell you this emergency didn’t involve Jerry Jones. The medical situation took place this morning before the Cowboys owner made his regularly scheduled radio appearance. https://t.co/JDJyvMZquV— David Moore (@DavidMooreDMN) November 24, 2020
As noted Jerry did appear on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning as normally scheduled.
Update: 11:18am ET
It appears as if the situation involves someone from the team’s strength and conditioning staff.
My understanding with the #Cowboys is that a member of their strength and conditioning staff had to receive serious medical attention. There is concern for this individual's well-being, per sources.— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) November 24, 2020
Hoping for the best.
