Dak Prescott, Cowboys’ HC Mike McCarthy to join team meetings virtually while recovering from back surgery

Head coach of the Cowboys Mike McCarthy has missed the team’s first rookie camp due to a back injury, but he doesn’t seem likely to be out for an extended period of time.

Rookie camp is a special opportunity for newly drafted picks and non-veteran players for practice sessions. Although camp began on Thursday, the rookies didn’t take the field until Saturday, and they’ll begin training with non-veterans on Monday.

Mike McCarthy missed the rookie camp for a back injury but remained connected with the team

Mike missed practice because of a back procedure he had earlier in the week, as announced by the teams’ officials, but later he appeared to be continuing to participate in team activities by virtually attending team meetings.

The team’s head coach looks committed to them and makes an effort to participate in almost all team matters. His great contribution to the Cowboys is well-known and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is also beside him to support the rookies and veterans.

“It’s easy because Mike is always so clear and, ‘hey, this is what we’re going to do,’ so we had a real vision for what we wanted to get accomplished this weekend with these guys,” Quinn said.

“It’s mainly just taking those first steps and I think Mike would agree, let’s not miss one step of their development and see what we have and how we communicate and testing them and seeing where we are at. And then we’ll begin with Mike and everybody else here this week of merging everybody together. So if there was a time to miss for him, there’s never a time he would feel comfortable, but we all know we got his back, and we’ll get him back soon,” he added.

After playoff disaster, Dallas Cowboys need to fire Mike McCarthy, promote Dan Quinn to head coach

In 2020, the 59-year-old took the position of head coach of the Cowboys after serving as head coach of the Packers for 13 years and led them to win the Super Bowl against the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 during the 2010 campaign. Given his 10-9 playoff record while serving as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys, it is not hard to comprehend his success rate as a coach.

Fans of the Cowboys will probably hope for a super bowl during his tenure with the team, just as he did with the Packers in 2010.
