Parsons popped up on the injury report with a hand issue this week
Dallas Cowboys All-Pro linebacker Micah Parsons proved that even if you’re late to the party, you can still make an impact.
Late in the first quarter of the Cowboys’ Week 17 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, Parsons ran onto the field only seconds before the snap and busted through the offensive line to make a tackle.
Parsons, who will be playing hurt, was seen wearing a club cast on his left hand during the pregame warmups, having previously declined to discuss his injury.
“You know, football,” he told reporters on Tuesday after he was asked about the hand wrap he was wearing during practice. “That’s the reality of it. We play a physical sport. I’m good though.”
Limited this week in practice with a left-hand injury, the Cowboys listed Parsons as questionable heading into Thursday night but downplayed the injury when speaking with reporters.
Parson suited up against the Titans with his hand wrapped in a protective cast.
The club on Parsons’ left hand didn’t prevent the two-time Pro Bowler from recovering a fumble later in the opening half.
Parsons was not listed on Dallas’ injury report on Monday but was referred to as limited on Tuesday and Wednesday as the result of a hand injury. He is involved in the TNF clash with the Titans, who have several players out themselves and are starting a third-string quarterback.
With 10 minutes to go in the second quarter and the Titans driving, Cowboys’ defensive end Dante Fowler sacked Titans’ quarterback Josh Dobbs, stripping him of the football. Parson came up with the football with one good hand, fighting off the pile of humanity to recover the fumble.
Parson is no stranger to impactful plays this season. While the 23-year-old came into the Titans’ game with only 62 tackles, he ranked fourth in the NFL in forced fumbles (3), fifth in sacks (13), and ninth in tackles for loss (14).
Dallas Playing A Team With Nothing To Lose
While the game is a meaningless one for Tennesee – they will be playing the Jacksonville Jaguars to determine who wins the AFC South in Week 18 – the Cowboys could continue to put pressure on the Philadelphia Eagles after beating them on Saturday.
Should the Cowboys lose, Philly will clinch the NFC without having to play. Despite the importance of Thursday’s game where Dallas is concerned, Parsons would have been sidelined if the team thought the injury was serious.
