No doubt, I’m in the place I need this week. There are some moving parts. “
The Cowboys are testing daily for players, coaches and staff and will continue until Tuesday. The league has imposed a stricter protocol than this week, but the Cowboys were in that mode before the Thanksgiving. They had virtual meetings on Sundays and Mondays, and could do so on Tuesdays, but McCarthy left the possibility of “normal” practice open two days before the kickoff.
