Cowboys star rookie linebacker Micah Parsons landed on the Cowboys injury report on Thursday with a hip issue.

Fortunately for Dallas, it doesn’t seem like it will keep Parsons out for any time.

Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Friday that Parsons’ hip discomfort came out of a Monday workout in the weight room.

“I don’t think it’s of a serious nature,” McCarthy said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “Just being cautious.”

Parsons was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice.

Parsons is the clear favorite to win defensive rookie of the year. In 12 games, he’s recorded 72 total tackles, holds a league-leading 16 tackles for loss, 10.0 sacks, 25 quarterback hits, a pair of forced fumbles, and two pass breakups.

The Cowboys head to Maryland this weekend for a significant divisional matchup against Washington.

  1. lol

    Famous last words of delusion.

    When you use a small guy as a DE in this league, what do you think is going to happen? This guy will turn into the next Jamal Adams. Runs around a lot, but smart offenses will know how to use this against him.

  2. Parson’s hip is a HUGE ISSUE to keep an eye going forward. One hit could end his season. A hip/Groin injury takes a while to heal and gets worse/hurt fairly easily if you’re out playing on it putting weight/pressure on it. It should be rested till it’s healed, this is definitely something to keep an eye on .

  3. DROY and it should be Defensive Player of the Year… look at the numbers and now teams are scheming against him, says something
