According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dallas Cowboys added linebacker Micah Parsons to the reserve/COVID-19 roster ahead of Saturday’s match against the Philadelphia Eagles. The new league guidelines are in response to the CDC’s revised suggestions. He will not be able clear protocols in time to play without two negative tests.
Parsons, in his rookie season, has been one of the NFL’s most versatile defensive players and competing for the Defensive Player-of-the Year award. Parsons has accumulated 84 tackles. He also recorded 20 tackles for lost and 13 sacks in 16 games. There were three pass deflections as well as three forced fumbles.
Micah Parsons should have the ability to make a return from the reserve/COVID-19 roster for the Cowboys first playoff game. This is regardless of whether they are able to play in the wildcard round or not.
Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys linebacker, argued this week why he should be named the NFL’s defensive MVP.
TJ Watt, Steelers outside linebacker, added four more sacks to his total of 21.5 for the year. Parsons believes that his impact on the Cowboys is more than just sacks.
Parsons stated Tuesday that he takes great pride in being one of the most versatile players in the NFL. “I believe I would rank with the best players in the league when it comes to impacting the game. It hasn’t been an all-man job. Being able to hold the receivers helps me a lot. But, I believe I do many different things on defense that can change the game.
Parsons said, “I don’t play just one position.” “I feel like I could rush and be an 18-20 sack man if I had the time.” If I kept my pass coverage intact and ran, I would be a 100-tackle man, too. Due to my abilities, I have to own certain items throughout the game. To be able to put my team in the best possible position to win, I have to play a part.
“When it comes to terms like that of just impacting the game, I would definitely put myself up there with those guys as being defensive player (of the year).”
