FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys are going virtual with meetings leading into Thursday’s game at New Orleans with COVID-19 infections on the rise again within the team. 

Coach Mike McCarthy says right tackle Terence Steele is among the positive COVID-19 tests and won’t play against the Saints. 

Offensive line coach Joe Philbin and assistant strength and conditioning coach Kendall Smith will miss their second consecutive games. 

Three more members of the staff are also out. They are strength and conditioning coordinator Harold Nash, assistant offensive line coach Jeff Blasko and offensive assistant Scott Tolzien.

The Cowboys were without receiver Amari Cooper for two games after he entered COVID-19 protocol on Nov. 19. 

Dallas will look to bounce back from two-straight losses as head into Thursday's matchup against the Saints.
