More concern has arrived at the Dallas Cowboys as two new players tested positive for the coronavirus.

In the run-up to the regular season opener, the Dallas Cowboys have a COVID-19 situation in hand. The team had already received some rough news regarding positive cases, but things only got worse on Wednesday.

This is because both Safety Domante Kazee and offensive lineman Connor Williams tested positive for the corona virus. That brings Dallas’ total to six, while defensive coordinator Dan Quinn also tested positive.

The Cowboys now have six players who recently tested positive for COVID-19

Prior to the Williams and Kazee news, head coach Mike McCarthy had been informed that wide receivers CeeDee Lamb, Safety Malik Hooker, Safety Israel Mukuamu and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins were also positive.

Things only got worse when Quinn fell sidelined too. Now all six players plus Quinn must follow all NFL COVID protocols before they can rejoin the team with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before September 9.

This includes having Williams and Kazee isolate and also test negative for the virus before they can reattach the pads and return to the practice field with the rest of their teammates. With this outbreak happening for the Cowboys, McCarthy can only hope that no more difficult updates are on the way. Who knows who was in close contact with Williams and Kazee before they tested positive.

The new Delta variant has spread at an alarming rate and unfortunately hit the Cowboys pretty hard this week. We’ll see if this doesn’t stop anyone from fighting Brady and Co. in the first week.
