FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) — During a morning press conference Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Mike McCarthy announced that two more players have been added to the COVID protocol list.
The affected players are offensive lineman Connor Williams and safety Domante Kazee.
Despite the positive test McCarthy said the Cowboys are still planning on playing this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
On Monday the team announced that wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, safety Malik Hooker and safety Israel Mukuamu were moved to the COVID/Reserve list. Being moved to the list doesn’t in and of itself reveal a player’s vaccination status, but does give clear dates as to when they can return to the field.
All of the news came after defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins were sent home early from Saturday’s preseason game against the Houston Texans.
The Cowboys open the regular season on September 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
