ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – The front office of the Dallas Cowboys is showing confidence in coach Mike McCarthy despite a rough debut.

The pandemic disrupted McCarthy’s first offseason, and injuries have derailed the season.

The biggest setback is star quarterback Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury. COO Stephen Jones says McCarthy “absolutely” will return in 2021 no matter how this season ends.

The Cowboys are 2-7 on their open week, tied for last in the NFC East lead. But no team in the division has a winning record right now.

Dallas returns Nov. 22 at Minnesota.
