Tuesday’s Dallas Cowboys injury report is here... Micah Parsons sat due to illness.

NFL: Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Playing in their second consecutive Thursday night game of the season, the Dallas Cowboys were back in the building on Tuesday and back to business in their week of preparation against the Seattle Seahawks.

Speaking of business, we had some news at the Star in Frisco today. The team hosted former All-Pro linebacker Shaquille Leonard after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts last Tuesday. After meeting with Jerry Jones today, Leonard left the facility without a contract and is set to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles tomorrow

Injuries have plagued Leonard in recent years; however, his skill and expertise would be a welcome addition. The Cowboys lost linebackers DeMarvion Overshown and Leighton Vander Esch for the year, and the Cowboys are hoping Leonard can step in to fill the void.

As for the Cowboys on the practice field, here is your Tuesday injury report.

After being given a veteran rest day, Zack Martin and Tyron Smith returned to practice.

Dante Fowler, absent due to illness yesterday, was not practicing with the team again.

Micah Parsons, also battling an illness, did not practice Tuesday.

Meanwhile, safety Jayron Kearse practiced again today after being a limited participant on Monday with a back injury. Rico Dowdle was listed as limited again, as the team has taken a cautious approach with his ankle injury. Finally, Tyrus Wheat was a full participant albeit on the injury report with a concussion.
