Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (illness) misses practice

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons missed Tuesday’s practice due to illness ahead of the Thursday night matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Parsons and defensive end Dante Fowler were both listed on the injury report as “DNP” due to illness.

Television cameras caught Parsons vomiting twice on the sideline during the Thanksgiving Day win over the Washington Commanders, but Parsons said that was due to ingesting energy and hydration powder before the game.

“I got some water to help put it down. By the fifth play it felt like my heart was gonna jump outta my chest. I felt like I was about to explode. I’m never doing that (stuff) again,” the 24-year-old said postgame.

Parsons has 11.5 sacks to lead the Cowboys and ranks first in the NFL with 71 pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. He was a first-team All-Pro in each of his first two NFL seasons.
