It appears Sergio Garcia isn’t the only professional athlete who withdrew from an event without giving a reason within the last week. Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was scheduled to appear on FS1 on Tuesday to join Undisputed hosts Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe for a new weekly NFL segment, but the second-year star never made it or gave a reason for his no-show.

To make matters even worse, Parsons already had equipment installed in his Dallas-area home to help make the appearance as easy as possible on him, making it really hard to guess as to why he never showed up.

Perhaps it was “quiet quitting.” Or perhaps it was because Parsons was salty because the Cowboys were dismantled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football in front of a national audience. Whatever the reason for Parsons, who did have two sacks of Tampa quarterback Tom Brady in the loss, not showing up for work, Sharpe said he was still hopeful the 23-year-old would make an appearance.

“He’s a phenomenal player and to get his insight into what transpired the Sunday before would’ve been great for us. But, maybe he wants to focus on football,” Sharpe said. “Maybe the loss was more crushing to him than he thought it would be. I know it’s kind of difficult when you lose a ballgame. I know he thought they was going to be special this year, and they could still be special. I’m hopeful that after a couple weeks of them getting back to winning that he’d join us during the season, even if it’s not every week.”

Parsons did ditch out on Bayless and Sharpe after the loss, but he hasn’t gone completely silent as he took the time earlier this week to complain about his Madden rating on social media and encourage fans to call a hotline to boost his rank.

Perhaps if he makes it onto Undisputed this week, that can be a talking point. Should Parsons appear, there’s a good chance it will be after a loss, as the Cowboys are hosting Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
