Cowboys DC Dan Quinn, lineman out over COVID protocols
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins sat out Saturday night’s preseason game vs. the Houston Texans due to COVID-19 protocols.
The Cowboys’ coaching staff is 100 percent vaccinated and 93 percent of the players are, too. However, it’s not clear if Watkins is among that group.
“Both men left the stadium earlier today out of an abundance of caution,” the Cowboys said in a statement. “Quinn and Watkins will be re-evaluated by the Cowboys medical staff tomorrow.”
Watkins is in his first season in Dallas after playing in 42 games (18 starts) for the Texans over the past four seasons. He signed a one-year deal worth $1.75 million with the Cowboys in March.
