Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy underwent surgery today to remove his appendix, and the good news is that the procedure went well and that he's expected to be able to coach on Sunday. 

Via the official press release: 

"Dallas announced McCarthy experienced abdominal pain Wednesday morning that warranted further evaluation and resulted in his diagnosis, leading to surgery Wednesday afternoon, according to the team. NFL Network's Jane Slater reported Wednesday afternoon that McCarthy was out of surgery and his procedure "went fine."

McCarthy is expected to be released from the hospital, and anticipates coaching Sunday night against the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles, per the team.

Dallas' three coordinators -- defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and special teams chief John Fassell -- will run Wednesday's practice, per the team.

McCarthy has coached at the NFL level since 1993, and has served as the head coach in Dallas since 2020. His Cowboys are soaring this season, winning five of their last six games prior to their meeting with Philadelphia, which could change the complexion of the NFC East race with a Dallas victory."

Best wishes to coach McCarthy for a quick recovery!
