Cowboys released from isolation after COVID scare

The Cowboys have been cleared to resume training after a COVID-19 scare swept through the club.

Coach Todd Payten is still in isolation and will remain there for 14 days after he was deemed a close contact to a positive COVID case but the players have been released from isolation after returning negative test results.

They will play under the direction of senior assistant coach Dean Young, who has stepped up to deputise for Payten while he's in isolation.

The negative test results for the players ensured the Cowboys' clash with the Knights will go ahead as scheduled on Saturday.

"Todd's in good spirits," Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel said yesterday.

"I spoke to him before I came on (a media conference via Zoom) and he's very keen to ensure that the team has very little disruption as we go into Saturday."
