The hits just keep on coming for the Dallas Cowboys. Rookie cornerback Nahshon Wright, a third-round pick, has been added to the Reserve/COVID list and will miss the Cowboys’ matchup Thursday night with the New Orleans Saints. He joins right tackle Terence Steele and head coach Mike McCarthy as the most recent members of the organization to contract the virus.
Wright has appeared in 10 games this season, logging five defensive snaps as and 208 on special teams. That’s where he had his only impact play of the season against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. Wright recovered a punt that was blocked by defensive end Dorance Armstrong for a touchdown in the Cowboys’ 43-3 blowout win.
Good for Dorance Armstrong.
Good for Nahshon Wright.

The former Oregon State Beaver will now enter into a 10-day quarantine and will have to have two negative tests within 24 hours of each other to return to the team.
With the Cowboys looking to get past a recent slump, they certainly hope Wright is the last player to get COVID for the foreseeable future.
