Mike McCarthy's status for the Eagles-Cowboys game has been revealed following emergency surgery.

On Wednesday afternoon, after presenting abdominal pain to his doctors in the morning, Mike McCarthy, the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, was given a diagnosis of acute appendicitis according to the medical professionals. 

McCarthy's treatment appears to have been successful, according to all indicators, which is a fortunate development. It is anticipated that he will return to the Cowboys' headquarters by tomorrow night, 

and maybe more significantly, he will be coaching the game against the Eagles on Sunday. 

"After undergoing surgery yesterday, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, who was diagnosed with acute appendicitis, has returned to his residence. He is doing quite well.

 It is anticipated that he will return to The Star tomorrow, and he will be coaching the Cowboys' game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night," says Cowboys insider Jon Machota. 

McCarthy, who is 60 years old, has led the Cowboys to a 9-3 record as of Week 13 of the season.

There are just a few weeks left in the regular season, and the Dallas franchise is presently only one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the National Football Conference East. 

If they were to win on Sunday, they would be able to catch up to Philadelphia. The Eagles and Cowboys game is scheduled to begin on Sunday at 8:20 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) from Dallas.
