Dallas Cowboys fans were given a little scare by the absence of defensive star Micah Parsons.
Parsons was unable to attend last weekend’s match against the Los Angeles Rams, but he eventually returned. Parsons missed practice today so there were concerns about whether he would be able play in the crucial divisional game against Philadelphia Eagles.
Parsons missed practice but he made it clear that he will not be missing the game this weekend. Parsons replied, “There’s no doubt” when asked if Philadelphia would be his opponent.
“Just taking it easy,” he added, via reporter Todd Archer. “Don’t really want to push it. Just letting it rest and working, grinding it out so that I’ll be ready on Sunday.”
Micah Parsons did not practice Wednesday, but “there’s no question,” he plays vs. Philly. He went through resistance training early in practice. “Just taking it easy. Don’t really want to push it. Just letting it rest and working, grinding it out so that I’ll be ready on Sunday."

Parsons and Company will be looking to continue the momentum this weekend.
