Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (illness) misses practice again

Dallas Cowboys star linebacker Micah Parsons missed his second straight practice on Friday due to what is being labeled as an illness.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the team website on Thursday that Parsons tested negative for both COVID-19 and the flu. Dallas coach Mike McCarthy confirmed on 105.3 The Fan that Parsons is dealing with allergies.

“(Parsons) is feeling better today, but he will not practice today,” McCarthy told reporters on Friday.

The Dallas Morning News reported Parsons still is expected to play on Monday when the Cowboys (1-1) visit the New York Giants (2-0) in East Rutherford, N.J. Parsons is tied for the second in the NFL with four sacks and has recorded 17 in just 18 career games.

Tight end Dalton Schultz was able to do movement and ball-skill work on the side Friday. He is dealing with a sprained right knee sustained during the Cowboys’ 20-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals last weekend.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) was seen doing conditioning work on Friday.

Prescott was injured in the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and backup Cooper Rush was at the helm last week against the Bengals.

Reports: Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz to attend minicamp

Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz plans to report to minicamp Tuesday despite his unresolved contract situation, multiple outlets reported.

He was franchise tagged in March and signed his $10.931 million tender for 2022 but has skipped voluntary organized team activities while seeking a long-term agreement.

Schultz, who turns 26 next month, would have been subject to fines for missing this week’s mandatory minicamp.

Schultz caught 78 passes for 808 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 games (15 starts) last season.

The Cleveland Browns recently re-signed tight end David Njoku to a four-year, $54.75 million deal with $28 million in guaranteed money. Njoku caught 36 passes for 475 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Schultz has 154 receptions for 1,545 yards and 12 scores in 60 games (36 starts) since the Cowboys drafted him in the fourth round in 2018.

Report: Dallas TE Dalton Schultz to sit out OTAs over contract

Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz won’t take part in the rest of the team’s voluntary organized team activities because he is unhappy with his contract, NFL Network reported Monday.

In March, the Cowboys put the franchise tag on Schultz, and he signed the $10.931 million tender for 2022. He is contractually obligated to play on that deal if a long-term agreement isn’t reached by July 15.

Schultz, who turns 26 next month, was a fourth-round pick in 2018 and caught 78 passes for 808 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

The Cleveland Browns recently signed tight end David Njoku to a four-year, $54.75 million deal with $28 million in guaranteed money. Njoku caught 36 passes for 475 yards with a team-high four receiving touchdowns in 16 games (11 starts) last season.
