Dallas Cowboys star linebacker Micah Parsons missed Thursday's practice due to an illness.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the team website that Parsons tested negative for both COVID-19 and the flu.

"He does have the kind of symptoms that were best for him not to practice," Jones said. "Don't look for that to be a factor against the Giants. That's my information."

Dallas certainly wants to see Parsons on the field when the Cowboys visit the New York Giants on Sunday. He is tied for the NFL lead with four sacks and has recorded 17 in just 18 career games.

Star cornerback Trevon Diggs missed the session after being excused due to a personal matter.

Tight end Dalton Schultz (sprained right knee) missed practice as expected. He was hurt in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Others who missed practice were safety Jayron Kearse (knee) and guard Connor McGovern (ankle).
