Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is the latest member of the organization to test positive for COVID-19, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The Cowboys placed starting right tackle Terence Steele on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday.

The team said Steele would miss this Thursday night's game against the New Orleans Saints due to NFL protocols, along with the Cowboys' offensive line coach, two offensive assistant coaches and two strength and conditioning assistants.

Wide receiver Amari Cooper has missed the past two games in COVID protocols.

McCarthy, 58, is in his second season as the Dallas head coach. His Cowboys (7-4) have lost three of four heading into Thursday's Week 13 game at New Orleans (5-6).
