Head coach Mike McCarthy said he will rejoin the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday following a stint in the COVID-19 protocols, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

McCarthy tested positive prior to last Thursday's game against the New Orleans Saints and was forced to miss the contest as a result. But he insists he's feeling great and "ready to go" ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Washington Football Team.

"I'm just thankful that it is behind me and, frankly, I can get back to my job full time," McCarthy said.

Multiple Cowboys players and staff members spent time in the protocols recently, though McCarthy said the club is "back to a pretty normal protocol."

Dallas is in the driver's seat in the NFC East with an 8-4 record, though Washington is lurking just behind at 6-6.
