The Dallas Cowboys appear to be at full strength for Sunday’s playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach, announced Wednesday morning that Micah Parsons, a rookie linebacker and Tyron Smith, an All-Pro offensive tackle, were now off the reserve/COVID-19 roster. Due to positive tests, they missed the game against Philadelphia Eagles last weekend.
Parsons and Smith are among the most important players on Dallas’ team, so McCarthy’s squad should see their return for Sunday’s match.
Parsons has recorded 84 tackles, 30 quarterback hits and 13 sacks in 16 games this season. Parsons, a Penn State product, has been the most exciting player on Dan Quinn’s defense even though he is a rookie.
Smith is still one of the most skilled offensive tackles in football. Smith will be at his best if the Cowboys are to protect Dak Prescott on Sunday.
Dallas is currently dealing with the bad news that coach Lunda Wels, a tight ends coach, remains under COVID-19 protocols.
Micah Parsons, Tyron Smith are off the COVID list, according to Mike McCarthy. TE coach Lunda Wells is in protocols at the moment.
